Title Stockings
Description child, spoke shakily into the dark to the little figure in the doorway, "Come closer, child." Very slowly and sadly the child came further into the room. Maria knew him first. "Matthew," she said, trying to extend her arm to greet him. "Eliza," she said moving the hand in which she held the stockings, "for Matthew." Eliza grasped Maria's hand. "For Anson," she comforted. "For the child." Maria pressed the stockings into Eliza's hand. Her eyes closed, and she was quiet. In time some of the group filed out into the night. Eliza, not knowing where she walked, went out after them. On the hill she saw a misty and strange glow from the smoldering wood of the house. She stepped into the blackness of the night. It seemed from nowhere there came a sob. The sound brought Eliza into her full mind. She looked at the place the sound came from, the same place the flickering candle shone through the window of the house onto the cool ground. There, curled, lying on the ground was a child. "Matthew?" Eliza asked quietly. Startled, the little boy drew back. She knelt down and drew him closer, and felt his cold feet. She held out the stockings. "For you," she said. She looked into his face. And she thought she saw a light pass under his tears and through his eyes.
