Word of the Day
Mercy
(noun) – compassionate treatment of someone under your power; clemency; also a disposition to be compassionate or forgiving; also a fortunate thing, something to be thankful for; also a relief (etymology: from Latin "merces" meaning "pay" or "reward")

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, when Chariss rescued Sorne Jeel from his father, mercy stayed her hand and she didn't kill the ogre outright; she allowed him to be arrested and sentenced by the Arcanan officials.
