Prompt: Quarter moon better than none

“It’s so very dark,” Joram said, frowning. He looked over his shoulder at Cianal. “It’s never this dark in Himulai.”

“More street lights there,” Cianal said. He looked up at the sky and smiled. “It could be worse, though. At least there’s a sliver of moon to shed some light on us.”

Joram looked up at the sky and frowned. It had been the same when Cassidy had died – just a sliver of moon hung in the sky. It had been two months ago. How many more such nights would come and go before her killer was brought to justice?
