Drabble: The long view…

Dornaa sat on Matty’s lap and put her tiny hands on both sides of Matty’s face. She said, “You’re old but pretty, Matty.” Matty laughed, tickling the tiny girl. “You are so right, my darling girl, and you are silly as a gnome and twice as cute!”
She thought of that now—Mataoka, (never “Mommy”), was so patient—except when she wasn’t. But she was always fair. This gave Dornaa self-respect. Matty had one request for the young Draenei—to go to Azuremyst and understand her true people again. She loved it, but home was still just out of reach.
