It was not what Stephen was looking for, but when he found it, neatly folded in the bottom of his sea chest, he quite forgot his original purpose. He touched it reverently, caressing the soft wool as he brought it to his face. It smelled of Ireland: grass, sea air and sweet peat smoke. He could just find a hint of perfume. Without even having to close his eyes, he saw how the sun always shone in her hair. Her laugh rang out over the creaking timbers. He used the scarf to dry his face before hiding it away again.
