Looking at him, Trinity could feel all her hate and anger build up inside, escalating into a fit of blinding rage. She could not think straight, sort her thoughts or even concentrate as her hands twitched spasmodically at her sides and her eyes blurred. It was so strong, the seductive pull of burning hatred that ripped at her being that she could not even attempt to resist it, not even if she wanted to. It felt as if she had not experienced anything until that moment; that when she surrendered herself so willingly to the churning fire of anger, all that she had once believed to be emotion disappeared from her body like smoke from a chimney. That was all it was, her feelings, an illusion, a fragment of her mind that was destined to fade away in order to make room for the one thing that she could truly count on. Rage. Fury. Abhorrence.
