Talia, p. 9

written in a slow, careful hand…

I dreamed last night…
…….a fitful sleep at first…
I dreamed of battle…… orcs….. and fire…

I dreamed…

I dreamed of friends and heros fallen…
……and then the sun set…
…………plunging me into darkness…

I dreamed…

I dreamed of an angel…
……a creature of light…
…………and I knew peace…

I dreamed…

…the sun rose…

……and when I woke…

…………I was alone.
