Complete the short story/flash fiction, that has the following first paragraph:
The walk from his cell to the executioners block was down a straight passage with no doors or windows. Torches lit the passageway every fifteen feet and cast flickering shadows both in front and behind him. His walk, slow but steady, traversed the distance and caused the square of light at the end, the light of the open courtyard, to grow steadily larger. A distant rumble of noise came from the courtyard but ceased immediately upon his passing through the doorway. They were there to see him, the Butcher of Bartok, be put to death, but he had no intention of dying this day.
