Remnants

“I’d like to know more about the residents of the palace. It feels like every carefully placed stone has a story to tell.”

The guide looked at her with misty eyes, her voice choked.

“It was a city, not just a palace. Each stone speaks of dreams destroyed, to appease the ego of palace residents.”

“Who lived in the palace?”

“There are palaces across the world. Why speak of the residents only in this one?  The stones reveal a pattern of destruction – a strategy to bomb some and leave some. Bunkers that failed to protect have left behind some remnants.”
