In the darkness at dawn, Eldarion waits for his son to be born. He remembers his father; the strange events that transpired at this time, two years ago; and his strange, recurring dreams.
Companion to my fic 'Where The Shadows Lie', taking place approximately 2 years after the concluding events. Reading that fic will make this more meaningful, but doing so is not strictly necessary.
Warnings for very mild blood/gore and brief mentions of childbirth.
Written for B2MeM 2017. Prompt: "It was the possibility of darkness that made the day seem so bright." - Stephen King. Green Path. One edit has been made from that version, in that I have omitted Eldarion's age. I'll leave it up to you to decide when you think he would have been born!
