A Light So Dark by Isabelle Artwork by John William Waterhouse “Thisbe,” a muffled voice called from the other side of the cracked wall. Her breath hitched. “Yes,” was her strangled cry, as her eyes slipped closed and her head fell back against the wall. “Every night I fear it will be someone else’s voice I hear.” “Never. So long as I live I will take my place beside you.”
