Land of Falling Stars #Thursday13

13 Sentences from Land of Falling Stars by Author Keta Diablo

[The Civil War has come to the South. In an attempt to protect her childhood home from looters and deserters, Sophia spies a stranger coming down the hill. In a moment of fear and indignation, she shoots the man. And soon discovers it's Gavin, the champion of her childhood.]

Sophia's gaze wandered to the Yankee's face. "Sweet Mother of Jesus, Gavin!"
Drawn to the wound in his chest, blood soaked his dark blue shirt and fanned out to the waistband of his trousers.
Cloudy, pain-filled eyes opened and a pained smile bracketed his mouth. "Walked for miles."
Memories from their childhood surfaced. "Oh, dear God, I didn't know, thought you were one of them."
He struggled to lift his head. "Discharged, head wound, I came to tell you . . . ."
Scattering the pewter buttons, she tore his shirt open.  Dear God, so much blood.
"Thought of nothing but you while I was gone; nothing but you since the day I pulled you from the river. Jesse ... Jesse is―" His head fell to the side and his eyes fluttered shut.
