Girl, Embalmed

He found her in the sand-dunes one morning, uncovered by a violent storm. She was perfectly embalmed. Parchment skin drawn tightly across high cheekbones. Her honey hair braided through with a faded indigo ribbon.
Aragorn tried to visualise her in one of the ruined cities in a time before the sands. Standing in a doorway, braiding her hair. And losing her way in the desert one evening...meeting someone unknown.

He carried her gently down to the high water mark and buried her. Before he covered her face, he removed the indigo ribbon and wound it around his wrist...without knowing why.
