Re: IC II Toes In The Water
Miriam finds the strength to go kneel next to Mary, hug her and cry with her.
She barely has the strength to say 'I am so sorry .... I did not want to reopn these old wounds ... what reason did he give you when he left you?'
She thinks to herself 'I wonder if I should thanks that old maid at the temple who taught me how to brew moon tea. I remember her words. If you lose your maidenhood before marriage, drink this after each deed. I never told Calric. What that a blessing?'
She tries to comfort Mary 'At least you got a beautiful son. There might have been some lies and untruth but you were blessed with a great child."
She thinks "Was she blessed? Or cursed?'
