#FiveSentenceFiction: Letters

Letters ~ Vault of Tears

Moon Loves the Darkness He lived only for them, in the deep dungeon they kept him in, for there was nothing else that could keep his will to fight on.

Long ago he had stopped counting days, then weeks, then months.

Then years, yes, he remembered the end of the first year, when he had decided, against all odds, that he would stay to read them.

At his core, his strength remained, unaltered, for he was deathless, as she knew, but still a prisoner.

Then, one night, he heard the sound of rock grinding on rock: and there she was , standing in front of him, the author of so many letters, his lover, his saviour.

Inspired by the character of Isa, who freed Siris from the Vault of Tears, in “Redemption” by Brendon Sanderson.
