The Prince of Crows
Sevatar, as a child on Nostramo – by Disarmonia, on DA. Oh, man. I get spoiled in terms of reader art already, but it’s been incredible recently. I adore this.
Flesh, flesh, flesh, the crows cawed.
Jago dropped the dead boy’s ankles and sat down, catching his breath.
Flesh, he replied. Save me some, he said to the birds as they flocked down onto the corpse.
Yes, Boy, they kept cackling. Yes, yes, yes. Save some for Boy.
You can have the eyes, he told them. I don’t like the eyes.
They croaked crow laughter at this oldest of jokes between them. They knew the Boy never ate the eyes. He’d tried once, and the meal had made him see things. The Boy bled sweet man-blood from his nose and ears for hours, and slept all night, twitching on the stone.
