Winding Down

She groaned, only one hundred years old, but I feel like one thousand. I ache everywhere. She took the clothing into her arms and left her house.

“This cloak is warm, Imogen. Please, take it. A gift from me to you.”

“’Tis too fine for the likes of me, Lady Gilraen. ‘Tis fine wool.”

“It’s elven-made and will keep you dry all winter. Please. I have no more use for it.” After much coaxing she left, the cloak draped over the stool behind her.

In a similar manner the next days passed. Within a fortnight, her grave had been prepared.
