Several questions swirled around her head until one coalesced.
“Who paid for the tombstones?” Clara asked.
“Who indeed,” the Eleanor of the South replied.
“Did you take them to their final destinations?” Clara asked.
On a hunch she aligned herself so that the east and west versions of Eleanor were on either side of her. This is starting to feel like a game.
“He came willingly,” Eleanor of the East said.
