The warmer months are finally upon me and I’ve had fewer instances of drawing out Adrian’s cloak just to make it through the night. It still smells of smoke even though six months have passed since the fire, and that’s six months since he put a headstone over an empty grave. I have only seen it once, for safety reasons, but he spared no expense.
