Madison’s 100WC

“Edward, dead” and that is all my mother could say, those words meant more to me than anything even one thousand words. I couldn’t believe it, he was so alive and kissing me goodbye before he went to fight as an ANZAC. Mother looked up from her hands, face stained and blue eyes blood shot, “Mike sent this, he said he wrote it and this small pack came with it.” Tears streaming down my face I read it.

It broke her heart as I opened it to see a ruby and it felt like a cold hand gripping her heart.
