This short story is 100% non-stressful: perfect for a quick read before bed, especially in a time of stressful news. It's not perhaps the right choice for the arachnophobic, though!

Suzannah  Rowntree
“She stared at the featureless iron and felt more keenly than ever the distance between them. Now. Now was the time to say what might be the last words he would ever hear from her.
"Fight," she said at last. "Win.”
Suzannah Rowntree, Pendragon's Heir

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
