Two of Spades


Lani and Alan were laid to rest on the same day.... it was raining.
... Lani's funeral was first, she was burried on the shelter's grounds near a large tree with a large monolith enscribed with the words she herself had picked for epitaph, spoken by Epictitus thousands of years ago.... "Only the Educated Are Free." and it seemed slightly strange that she specified this be the only thing left on her stone, although a foot stone was also plased (by demand of the residents" that bore "Lani; Rescuer, Protector, Sage, Healer" and under that in slightly bigger letters... "AND BELOVED FRIEND".
....Alan's funeral was attended with no less tears and Alans mom was so grief stricken that she remained completely veiled through both ceremonies and would avoid any talk about there deaths for the rest of her life, nor would she entertain more than occasional visits to the grave sites of either her son or her good friend Lani. This only seemed strange to those who did not yet know that aliens lived among us.
