That was abseloutely beatifully written, I am awe of how you were able to write so much but with so few words.
Author's Response: Anwyn, thank you for your comments. This piece was originally written for an early version of Chapter 12 of "Journey of Sorrow." After several rewrites, the section no longer seemed to fit, so instead of losing what I had written, I decided to convert it into a drabble. Thanks for reading. :)
