AU. Set after the war. The war is done and Robb Stark rides north to Winterfell, his heart full not of glory but of grief. Lottie has her own grief to struggle with but a chance encounter could mark a fresh start for both of them. No one ever said it would be easy, no one had ever warned them it would be so hard. Only time can make things easier to bear. Rated M. Eventual Robb/OC.
