Finally, I've written the story of Maude's First Death that I've been wanting to write for quite some time now. I find her a fascinating character to write, and every so often, give in the urge to explore her a little bit more. This also gave me a chance to explain, maybe just a little, why Charlotte gives Maude so many second chances over the course of their relationship. Hope you enjoy it. Characters
: Maude Standish, Charlotte SparrowNotes
: PG13, Magnificent Seven in the Aces Immortal/Echoes the Sea
