He chose to live there and help the souls move on, but one soul threatens to reawaken the past. Rhythm is determined to send her on as quickly as possible, but her fate fights against them both.
“Who is she?”
“What? Her name is Rae Evers, but what does that matter?”

Erit gave him a little shake, now beginning to scare Rhythm. “How do you know her?”
“What? I don’t know her! I haven’t reaped her yet.”
