A/N: 100 words for the blackpearlsails prompt 'Glimpse'.




“The world seems a bit less bright,” says Gibbs, but Elizabeth thinks him blind. For the bayou shines gold tonight. Sorrow glistens and tears catch each flame, reflecting them back tenfold. The heavens have fallen, she thinks. I shall drown among these stars.

Truth is written upon stricken faces, as they sway and moan, waist deep in black water. Their grief is drawn in candlelight, their mourning pure and honest. He was loved, she realises. He was loved.

Elizabeth stands in the doorway and turns to the shadows for fear of them seeing what is written in her own tears.
