    Summary

    “…he had been rather fond of his herbaceous border."

    The Victorian townhouse sat in a valley far from where it had been built. It heard strange echoes inside itself and drowsed in the warm herb-scented breeze. Its rooms dreamed of the Cabals.

    Summary

    And it was unclear who had spoken first, or who had sipped his wine after the smallest of smirks, because they had trapped each other and themselves in this charade, and Johannes had been warned by his brother about therapists, and he had been warned by his mother about men like this one, men who hide who they really are and are as dangerous as they don’t appear to be, and he blatantly ignored them all, taking another bite of the enticing appetizer in front of him.
    Hannibal Lecter poured them both another glass of blood-red wine. They might’ve toasted something, but not something cliche, like their health or happiness, but to a darker creature, one they were both a bit afraid to acknowledge.

    Summary

    There was a death, a drowning. She swept the land like the plague, decaying everything in sight, save for an estate on the outskirts. It remained lush, green, surrounded by moss-bearing trees and the sighs of breezes, paradise in a mourning land. And the people of that estate were grateful, surprised they had such an angel watching over them. And she made sure the Cabal brothers would thrive.
    At least, for the time being.

    Summary

    Johannes stopped thinking about it. Every shot came quick between the eyes or deep in the gut. Sometimes he would weigh the bodies down; sometimes he would chop and scatter pieces. His eyes grew dark before a kill, and then they grew dark every morning, like his brother’s, like his father’s. He put a suit on every day from the moment he turned seventeen. He smoked after every death. He learned little tricks to get him through the assignments, drank shots with Horst when he returned home. He could have been thirty, and no one would have questioned him.
    It didn’t start off that way, but really, when does it ever begin the way you expect?

    Summary

    "Please don’t tell me that I’m your brother, either,” he added in a reflective little tangent, making a face. “I know that I’m your brother. Everyone knows that I’m your brother. I’d like to bypass the self-evident here.”

    Left Right, the whole world's on fire,
    Black widow known to keep my eyes on the prize,
    Web unstuck, pray to lady luck,
    You think your going to get me but your never going to get me alive.
