  1. Summary

    Edwin Jenner is a broken man, the world saw to that with the death of his daughter. With the end of the world and the death of his wife, he has nothing but a promise he made a dying woman to keep him dragging his feet one step in front of the other.

    Enter an orphaned girl, suffering selective mutism from the trauma of watching her mother die. Edwin doesn't want to be alive, and he can't see why she would either, but the bond of grief brings them together, and gives them something to hold onto. One way or another, he'll give his all to give her a life worth living.

    Summary

    And the man is there again and he promises Laila everything again with sparks in his gaze, arms outstretched, offering her a wriggling bundle of gore. He comes closer and she hears her daughter coo and sees her tiny hands reaching for her mother to hold her.

    The man stops and tells her plainly, “A life for a life.”

    There is no uncertainty, no pause. “My life, my soul, and anyone else’s.”
