Song for the dead by AlcoholicRattleSnake Song for the dead by AlcoholicRattleSnake
There is an urban legend around my city that my grandmother told me when I was a child. It is about a giant girl who was over 2 meters high at the age of 10 and was shot by her father after she killed several people when she tried hugging them. It is also said that she used to eat babies.
After a while her father felt bad about what he did and made her a giant statue of her and placed it near her grave. This statue is real. It is 2 meters high and showing a young woman kneeling with her eyes up to the sky while praying. It is the most imposing and fascinating statue in the Eternitatea Cemetery from my city.

The skeleton is the giant girl. She is wearing a wedding dress because according to funeral traditions girls/women who never been married are buried wearing wedding gowns.
The girl playing the violin is Hera,my Oc you already know.She is hired by the family of the deceased to sing and comfort the dead.

Yes...I haven't been able to buy a tablet. I keep telling myself I'll buy one since 2009...sadly I'm a huge spender and I can't save up anything.
