Drabble: Sands of Time

Challenge: highlander100 #110 - "Insanity"
Disclaimer: Cassandra and her issues all belong to Davis/Panzer

Years have weight. The sands of time settle on me, grain by grain. Memories from the past and broken images from the future – I am ground between their twin stones.

Have I eaten today? Dried food on the plates in the sink, many days old. It hardly seems to matter. Death walks the lands.

The voice of a brave boy, a flashing smile, ozone and sulfur of battles unfought. My Highland child. Death will abandon him.

Where is Duncan? Paris, Seacouver, Tibet? Am I too late? I must warn him. Evil is the color of blood.

Have I eaten today?
