Twilight descended upon them and left a chill in the air. Stone wept dew of evenings’ plight. No rest, no work, it all came down to that defining moment. Silence imbued as the stones sat in a rhythm of loneliness and heartache. She stood and stared at the creature that loved her and could not touch anymore. Her eyes glistened as her faithful companion lay upon her resting place, refusing to leave the one person who made sense in the world. The tail wagged as the caretaker approached with food and water and carefully patted his head.
“This is no place for you.” clipping the leash to the pup’s collar. “I found you a second life.”
The caretaker gently coaxed the companion from the cold stone and the spirit that remained relaxed and slept.
