Wordle #164

I’m a bit late but here is this week’s wordle challenge.
https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2017/07/17/wordle-164/
Here are the words!

1. Climb
2. Vague
3. Sadness
4. Perish
5. Pangs
6. Nepenthe (n.)) A drug or drink, or the plant yielding it, mentioned by ancient writers as having the power to bring forgetfulness of sorrow or trouble. anything inducing a pleasurable sensation of forgetfulness, especially of sorrow or trouble.)
7. Neolithic
8. Four
9. Offhand
10. Reappear
11. Sallow
12. Abdicate (v)) to renounce or relinquish a throne, right, power, claim, responsibility, or the like, especially in a formal manner )

He’d never tried to climb the social ladder, and everything was a little vague as to what awaited him after his brother had abdicated in his favour.
He watched the sallow skin reappear through the facial masking.
No amount of neolithic magic or chanting could postpone the inevitable.
Though his attitude may have seemed offhand, he knew his brother would perish within four days.
In order to alleviate his pangs of fear, he had secreted a Nepenthe in his satchel and administered a lethal dose.
He sat beside him and took his hand.
Wreathed in sadness, he would not let him die alone.
