The Meal

The Mother Queen sent Aziel to fetch her family members while she walked over to stand beside the bed. There, she observed that her grandson's chest no longer bore a glaring hole, and his eyes had now been closed. 

As his body was being wiped with a wet cloth, a servant inquired, "Mother Queen, what should we do about King Maxwell's clothes?" 

"Dispose of these by throwing them into the fire, and remove all other belongings and garments that belonged to him from the room," the Mother Queen responded, and before the servant could leave, her eyes fell on a white handkerchief, causing her to pause and say, "Wait."

Reaching out her hand, she took hold of the handkerchief before questioning, "Where did you find this?" 

"It was in his hand, milady," the servant replied with a bow while waiting for the small piece of fabric to be returned so he could proceed with the order to burn it.
