The first thing I notice are her ears close to her head, large and nearly flat. She is dying yet I notice her ears. They are the largest I have ever seen. Are they evidence? Evidence of fairies, elves and trolls? Her nose is tiny, like a doll’s; a nub of a nose in her fine boned face. Her skin is pale, wrinkled and thin. She is dying and I wonder, is she perhaps a changeling, a fairy child raised by humans. Her arms and legs are shriveled and bruised, her body is deteriorating yet she lives on, it is as if she cannot die. She begs for mercy, for death to release her. Her fingers are all the same size in a hand too large for such a tiny body. Her feet too are large. Her body is shutting down, refusing to work, yet she lives on. She cannot die. Is this the proof we seek? Is this the evidence we need? Is she immortal, a changeling?
