#Nations from the west had attacked Ruska many times over the years, and they never made it far. But the Scythians to the south were different. They lived a nomadic life on windswept steppes. They were as fierce and unyielding as their land.#cleanWIP #vss365— ML Farb (@FarbMl) May 6, 2020

Josefa had fallen in love with the church at once, its plain exterior awash in pink and white, surrounded by trees and vineyards and the overarching blue sky; it was a jewel of the Baroque style so prominent in the churches of southwestern Germany. Its plain, but beautiful, exterior, though, belied the rich interior that overwhelmed the senses with color and light and ornamentation worthy of a pilgrim church. The schemes of pink and white and glittering gold extended to the inside. Every statue and painting exuded a sense of movement, of life, a place where light and shadow could dance together.

#CleanWIP Half-Price Bride: Mrs. Reilly stood in the yard pinning clothes to the line. “Just set the flour on the porch. We appreciate it.”— Laurean Brooks (@Laurean2) May 6, 2020
Clint tipped his hat. He didn’t mind helping the Reillys. Mr. Reilly had lost a leg in the Civil War. Would the nation ever fully recover?
Having spent sixteen years of his life serving the nation. Being pulled into another’s battle was the last thing he wanted. Doomed. Whatever way he looked at it. Yet he felt a strong urge to step in and help. Because one person’s life was worth more than a statistic. #CleanWIP— Emily Yager (@TheEmilyYager) May 6, 2020
