She stood, waiting. The morning chill was fresh in her nostrils and the beat of the waterfall was prominent in her ears. She thought back to the early days when she and her husband had lived happily in this little cottage. She thought of the months they had spent building it, the seasons they had spent sowing seed and harvesting the crops. She remembered the cold winters and the hot summers spent with him, they had been times of peace. But that was before the war came.
Her husband had marched of to do his duty for the kingdom, and she hadn't heard from him since. Four years on, the war having now ended, she waited. Everyday she listened intently for the sound of a horse's hooves to drift along the stone path, for the familiar tune her beloved had always whistled. She was hopeful. She was sure that he would have survived the war - how could he not? He was a strong man. At the end of each day when he had not returned, she kept up her faith, hoping that tomorrow would be the day. "He will come", she told herself. "In time, he will come".
So, long time no build! I actually started this sometime last year, (early last month :P) but only just got around to finishing it. Hope you enjoy!
Hey for the MOCathalon, have you already formed a full team yet, if not would I be able to join?
I don`t want to be the annoying nagging kid or anything but if there is room that would be sweet.
Also maybe kiwibrix might want to join too, I`m not sure but I`ll him.
I know you've done it before, but there's just something about the shape of the base not being rectangular that is so lovely. The water looks wonderful. Also, since you haven't posted in awhile, you must have been so excited because I got three e-mails for this MOC!
