The look in her eyes touched Patrick’s soul,
nudging away the darkness
that had haunted him for many years.
Long after she rolled herself in a blanket
and fell asleep,
Patrick sat staring into the fire.
Something stirred in his heart
he hadn’t felt for a very long time.
Claudia had asked for his help.
Yet in her trust, Patrick found his own hope.
Was it possible his unknown wound was healing?
Could he find the light again
without knowing what caused the darkness?
