The crown the woman placed on his head was lighter than the helm he usually wore in battle, but it seemed heavier. He rose, turned to face his people, and saw Soraya's retreating back as she left the hall. The thunder of applause and shouts brought his eyes back from her stooped shoulders, and he lifted his hand and acknowledged the crowd.
He thought he saw her turn to look at him one last time, but she was too far away for their eyes to meet across the distance. He wondered if she smiled, if she wept. He did not, and would never know, as she turned once again and left him to his throne, his wife, and his people.
Farewell, my dearest love, he whispered silently, his heart weighing more
Skyrim-Awkward AffectionsWhiterun night was as peaceful as it could possibly afford after last dragon attack on western watch tower. Countless stars hung upon Night Lady's skirt as it jewels and the twin moon as her corsage. Pale azure aurora served as her veil. If one could personify the night, then she would be a fine lady bearing dress no mortals could even fathom weaving. With equally onyxian long hair with star encrusted tiara and aurora veil draped over her abyss black eyes.Skyrim-Awkward Affections2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I stood still, forced to the front of the small crowd of fourteen or so prisoners, ready for the headsman's block.
Well, as ready as an 'innocent but guilt ridden yet possibly guilty in some way' type of person could ever be.
A Nord, clad in the clothes of the Imperial Legion, stood next to an Imperial Legion Captain. He held a list, probably holding the names of the accursed, and seemed to be waiting for orders. Behind them and to the right side of the great Ebonheart Dragon statue, I saw Nenien Hlaalu, Vedam Dren the Duke of Ebonheart, and the Imperial Legion General, Tullius of Chorral, watching over the proceedings.
I grit my teeth.
Tullius made a signal to the Captain, who then turned and nodded to the Legion Soldier. He gave her a curt nod before consulting his list.
"Moirane Carvain of Bruma."
Whispers rippled through the crowd as I stepped forward with my head held high and my back straight.

...I'm not responsible for the assassinations...

Seeming so faint

No one to tell him
The words that he seeks
Praying for a whisper
To end his heart's strife
