ASCENSION 3- APOCALYPSE: 13.
There were individuals here from every clan, a community of about fifty people all working together in harmony.
They welcomed me without judgment and all that was asked of me was to help with the day to day tasks of everyday life.
I had my own room inside of this industrial refuge, my own piece of a humble life. By day I helped to haul fish and by night I once again began to spent time drawing and sketching. Life felt as though it was finding a balance at last.
It was only my dreams which still burdened me and the moments my mind drifted to Lexa. I awoke one night unable to find any rest and made my way outside to breathe in the sea air. As I sat looking up at the stars a voice sounded from behind me.
"You still don't sleep much, Skaigada."
I turned to see Luna as she sat down beside me.
"You weren't wrong about those demons," I replied.
"Is it the deeds you've done or the people you miss that haunt you?" She asked.
"A little of both," I solemnly answered.
"War twists us until all that's left is a broken shadow of the good that once was. An Ice Nation Warrior by the name of Tobias told me that. Tired of war and death, he left his clan and came here after The Great War Of Azgeda."
I was intrigued by Luna's story, "Where is he now?"
Her eyes glazed as she spoke of the man she greatly admired, "He passed away not long ago. After his death I was asked to guide our people. It's not wrong to allow those we've lost to occupy our thoughts, but we must be mindful not to allow them to consume us."
I turned my gaze back to the stars, "Even if you know you've broken not only your heart but their's also?"
Luna smiled, "You will find a way, Clarke."
She stood to her feet and paused to speak, "No matter what the circumstance I know Lexa would wish you peace," and with that she walked away.
I'd never told Luna that I'd fallen in love with Lexa, but as with most things she already knew. Like Lexa she was wise beyond her years, a mindful leader with a spirit as illuminating as the stars that burned in the sky.
