The nighmares began around two am.

                When I checked on him, he was burning with fever, shivering and thrashing, screaming for my father: “Al! Al! No..nooooooo!”

                I began rocking him gently, humming this old song Dad would sing to me, a song sung to comfort a terrified child when the valley echoed and rumbled with cannon fire and the village lay in ashes. A lullaby from the era of  the Ishballan War.

                “You’ll wake your brother,” I lied. “Shhhh, Edward…. It was just a bad dream. I’ll be right here—I’ll never leave you…”

                He whimpered and burrowed his face into the curve of my neck and I felt his taut shoulders sag with relief.
