"My Eli, you haven't aged a day since I met you. I am afraid, my love, that I am leaving you soon. Oh, Eli, I don't want you to be alone."
I knew what she meant, but I had to try my best, "I won't be alone, my heart. I will have our daughter and grandchildren. Our daughter is already coming into her own."
My love shook her head, “Eli, I know you. You will be alone when I pass. You are not the type to sit and play with grandchildren on your lap. You need to leave the City once I’m gone, my love. I think that is the only thing that you can do to keep your sanity.”
I didn’t like this kind of talk, “Eh’lian’e; we have years and years to worry about this!"
She smiled a little, "No Eli, we don't. The Queens of my line are given long life, but when we start to fail, we go quickly. I will be gone far faster than you think. It is okay, I've lived longer than most, I think. More importantly, I've loved better than any of them."
