A Steadfast ally, Until the End
For Chrobinweek2017, Day 4: Animals
It was Exalt’s Day, a holiday they established a year after Emmeryn’s fall. Over the course of years, the entire kingdom started pilgrimages to visit Her Grace’s statue Chrom erected two years after losing his sister. The people asked for protection alongside with wisdom, patience and warmth, Emmeryn’s most apparent virtues.
The holiday, despite partly losing its meaning for the royal family after they found Emmeryn safe and sound, was still a day for mourning and longing for the Queen. It was the day the Pegasus she cared for, Gaellus, died in battle, protecting her and her Prince with everything he had.
Robin wore her tactician garments as she walked through the back garden, close to the cleft Chrom and Lucina had smashed a hole in some years previous, her face somber, but a longing smile making its way over her lips. She carried a bouquet of ylissean lilies, her daughter’s favorite, and walked slowly towards the improvised grave.
