Time.

It crawled across the floor, silently weaving an awkward path upon the wood, disappearing with little more than a whisper to mark its presence. But each time the sun sailed across the sky it took with it a little more of her life, Draining from her that which was precious. And ever so slowly the floor began to crumble under the weight of a thousand feet. Time had destroyed her with its pillowed footsteps, tormenting her with what she could no longer see.

Its whispers were louder now, screaming past her ears with the fury of an oncoming storm. She could no longer run from its passage, and its demon claws raked her heart with slow turning poison.

The battle now lost, she sat in the tower of her own dungeon, chained by her failure to protect her kingdom. The castle was in shambles, with the remnant's of her court encrusted upon its walls. The change of bodies to bone long since past, and still she did not leave. She would not abandon her post, for the memories were threatening to pull her back into the darkness from whence she came.

A soft glow pulsed from the corner of her eye, as it had done for so long now. Lengthening the shadows of her darkness, forcing them ever closer to the surface of her mind. The warmth of the light caressed her cheek, and the tears once again began to flow. The bloody drops tracing the cracked riverbeds already dried upon her face, flowing unheeded to the slight bone of her jaw, dropping to the floor with a clash of thunder in her heart.

The Memories had won.
