EXCERPT:

The Queen’s head used to be tilted upward, her eyes to the afternoon sunlight. For a moment—just a moment—she dropped her eyes towards me. I stood transfixed. I remembered seeing hatred in a brave’s eyes, yet how even more poignant have been those eyes packed with grief.

She doesn't mourn her personal dying, yet that of her youngsters, i presumed. In that short melding of gazes, we have been neither white nor pink, English nor Paspahegh. We have been yet moms.

Would that I knew a local note for grief or sorrow, yet, sadly, i didn't. but I understood a mother’s center. As Annie Laydon stated, the boys folks struggle and the ladies people endure the brunt. This lady had borne the load of struggle among her humans and my very own and had paid the top cost any mom can pay—her young children. My eyes packed with tears for her loss, and for the lack of the entire young children and the entire moms from those wars.

No, I had no be aware for sorrow, yet I lifted my fist to my center and allow the tear run down my cheek. Your sorrow, my sorrow. we're either ladies, and we're either moms.

In go back, she gave the barest of nods, an acknowledgement. sure, it stated, thanks.

She had allowed me to proportion her hid grief. She then grew to become her eyes upward to the solar as soon as more—lest any soldier imagine her afraid or that she was once any much less warrior than they themselves have been. I knew she wouldn't cry out upon her death—natives by no means did.
