Essi's death by steamey Essi's death by steamey
Спустя несколько лет Лютик мог бы изменить содержание баллады, написать, как все было на самом деле. Но не сделал этого. Ведь истинная история не взволновала бы никого. Кому хочется слушать о том, что ведьмак и Глазок расстались и больше уже никогда не встретились? О том, что четыре года спустя Глазок умерла от оспы во время бушевавшей в Вызиме эпидемии? О том, как он, Лютик, пронес ее на руках между сжигаемыми на кострах трупами и похоронил далеко от города, в лесу, одинокую и спокойную, а вместе с ней, как она и просила, две вещи – ее лютню и ее голубую жемчужину. Жемчужину, с которой она не расставалась никогда.
Нет, Лютик оставил первоначальную версию баллады. Но все равно так и не спел ее. Никогда. Нигде. Никому.
Утром, еще в темноте, к бивуаку подкрался голодный и злющий оборотень, но, увидев, что это Лютик, послушал немного и ушел.

Мне очень нравятся ваши иллюстрации. Специально создала одноименную папку среди артов. Арты - это прекрасно, но вот иллюстрации - это золото.

I read that story not long ago.  It was so tragic that a young bard like her was struck down by plague when she had such a rich life ahead.

Yeah. This shit happens only with good people. But I think all life she would be miserable. Remember the pearl? She had not forgotten Geralt.

That part in the book was so achingly sad. Poor Essie. One of many fine moments in Sapkowski's stories. Real life intrudes on romance and fairy tales.

Totally agree with you. She was a really nice girl and a great person. Geralt could be happy with her much more than with Yen.
