Looking back, he thinks his first should’ve been over something important.
There should’ve been a snap. One, decisive moment, in which everything changed. That’s the way it is in books, isn’t it? There’s always a reason, always a backstory, something to explain why he is the way he is. An excuse, really. Because he’s many, many things, but stupid has never been one of them and he knows he wasn’t always like this. He can remember what it was like, before. Can remember himself telling Erskine, I don’t want to kill anyone; I don’t like bullies, I don’t care where they’re from and absolutely meaning it. Can remember being so careful with his shield, with his strength, with his aim, always avoiding the killshot. More than anything, he remembers the feeling of loss over the ones he did kill—and they were damn Nazi’s—and how the taking of a life, any life, once weighed heavily on his chest.
His first kill was because they were in his way.
