Author’s Extra Note: Many have commented on the skulls. I got my inspiration many years ago when I came across a picture of this church in Poland called The Chapel of Skulls in Kaplica Czaszek, Poland. Just this morn, I came across a youtube video about it…
Castles in the Air…
Takarna’s gaze lingered on the plaza below. Soon, she’d join the other Aki on the ship bound for Terra Firma.
Right now, she stood contemplating the past. Within the stone of the plaza the thousands of skulls she’d been forced to boil would forever glare up at the sky. The war was over. The faces remained forever sealed within the white sidewalks. She swallowed hard as the memories filled her eyes.
‘I promise, you will never have to see it again.’ Charles voice anchored her.
‘I will never forget.’ She whispered.
‘No, you won’t.’ He agreed. ‘None of us will.’
Author’s note: This morning, I was listening to Celtic Thunder’s rendition of “Castles in the Air” and it served as inspiration for this write though the story went a different direction. 7 days and counting down to move. I was up to see the progress on the new apartment, and the new tub is in! 🙂 YEAH! Meanwhile my little Tripper is getting into everything and is a little thief, stealing socks and anything else he can get his wee paws on. 🙂 ❤ McDonalds, where I’ve been posting from for the last 10+ years has changed their internet provider. The new provider does not support “Firefox”, so I’m finding new access points.
