Drabble: Día de los Muertos

Challenge: Highlander100 #114 "All Hallow's Eve"
Disclaimer: Davis/Pnzer claims the rights to Duncan and Tessa. I just write what the Muses tell me to.

Duncan knelt before the low table. He touched each object in turn.

A photo of Tessa laughing. Her smallest piece, as pleasing to the touch as it was to the eye. A candle. A loaf of sweet bread. A glass of Beaujolais. A favorite scarf, her scent long since faded from the wool.

A week ago he had felt his grief fresh, on the first anniversary of her death. But today was a day to celebrate Tessa Noel's life, as they had remembered fallen comrades during the Revolution.

Duncan closed his eyes and jumped once again onto the tour boat.

I'm always interested in how Immortals deal with the inevitable death of those they love.
