The Crone

Here's a short story I wrote some time ago for players of the online game, the lord of the rings.

It was written with the goal of making people stop to think and immerse themselves a little more deeply in the world around them, as well as providing an unusual point of view, in that the protagonist wasn't really intended to be anything other than just another face in a crowd.

I hope you enjoy the read.
