Rhen stood in front of the tombstone, the wind whipping her cloak back and forth. She knelt down and pulled out a rose. Placing it gently on the ground, she knelt down and touched the engravings with her hand.
She closed her eyes, feeling a presence near her. The spirit wrapped its arms around the human, making Rhen smile sadly.
"..It was you wasn't it?" The spirit nodded faintly, before stepping back. Rhen instantly felt cold drip into her skin and bones.
Rhen opened her eyes and stood up, looking at the ghost. The spirit was smiling, eyes gleaming with a sad happiness. The ghost wrapped its arms around the human, pulling her into a faint hug. Slowly, the apparition disappeared, but not before murmuring something to Rhen.
Before Rhen collapsed, she was caught in strong arms. "Are you alright?" a raspy voiced asked breaking the silence. The warrior allowed herself to relax before nodding. "I will be." Slowly Rhen turned around and wrapped her own arms around the vampire.
In a soft whisper, the human continued, "She's proud." The vampire tightened her grip slightly as she listened. The human drifted into silence, tears threatening to break through.
After what seemed like comfortable eternity, Rhen regained her composure and broke the hug, but not before grasping the vampire's cool hand. The two turned to look at the tombstone.
Mother, Queen, Warrior
She will be missed
"Let's go home."
