Rogan – OOG Eyes 01

(Rogan waits until everyone is settled for the night. He can hear the others moving about in the small inn chambers. Though he had greeted his mother on arrival earlier, it was something she said that’s bringing a lightness to his step. ‘Son, once everyone is to bed, come back and see me. I have some wonderful news to tell you. We’ll share it together over a flagon of good ale’. He found himself singing gently under his breath, as not to awaken those already set into sleep.)

“And there in the shade o’ the blue sap tree, he’ll find his lover sleepin…”

(He snuffs the candle and slips out the back door into the night. It was something she said, that’s bringing a lightness to his steps. Something in her smile. Something in his mother’s eyes.)
