#repost @outlanderitaly “Why do Papists burn candles before statues, then?” Jamie rubbed a hand through his hair. “
Aye, well. It’s…maybe a way of praying—and remembering. Ye light the candle, and say a prayer and think of people ye care for. And while it burns, the flame remembers them for ye.”
“Who do you remember?” Willie glanced up at him. His hair was standing on end, rumpled by his earlier distress, but his blue eyes were clear with interest.
“Oh, a good many people. My family in the Highlands—my sister and her family. Friends. My wife.” And sometimes the candle burned in memory of a young and reckless girl named Geneva, but he did not say that. Willie frowned. “You haven’t got a wife.”
“No. Not anymore. But I remember her always.” 😭💔 [From #Voyager, Ch 16] #outlander #jamiefraser #outlanderseason3 #samheughan #jamieandwillie
