100 Word Challenge - Anger, PLUS

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge authored by the serene Velvet Verbosity. The word is "Anger".

The voice filled his head ....

Why do you wander these streets, my son?
Because I felt it, and it made me afraid.
What was it you felt, my son, that so filled you with dread?
Anger. It made me want to strike my child.
Did you strike?
No. I would not. I cannot.
Then why have you fled?
I cannot face the anger again.
Do not be afraid, my son. Answer the question that will send you home.
What question will send me home?
Which has greater strength? Anger? Or love?
Then swallow your fear. Go home.
I shall.

Wow. You know I've experienced both extreme love and anger in recent times and though I had to think about it for a few, I 100% agree that love is stronger than anger. That was amazing :)
