A/N: 100 words for the blackpearlsails prompt 'Bed'. I'm sorry, I did it again :(



He’d touched her once since the musket ball punched her breast. Frozen fingers on a clay-cold cheek.

“Let me take her,” the lad had asked, after the battle. “Let me take her home.”

“She is home.” And the boy hadn’t argued, though his tears had rasped dry.

Wrapped in stiff, white canvas, the sea claims her, swallows her, a mother eating her young. “You killed her. She died because of you.” Will spits the accusation, expects cowed penitence, but such contrition would be a lie.

She lived because of me.

Sympathy, not humility, stills his tongue. The boy knows enough.
