As they journey they discover hidden histories, powers, and lies and truths that have been spun since the beginning of time. The consequence of failure, unimaginable.

Jumping over the edge of the bridge, Nivian landed with a soft tap on the surface of the water. She reached down, pulled the soul of the driver up by the collar of his shirt, and stood him up next to her on top of the water. She took the driver’s hand, palm up, in hers and waved her other hand over his. Pinching the air, she pulled, lifting up and exposing his life thread, his wide eyes were hypnotized by the glowing string of light. Grabbing the scythe strapped to her back she swung. With a slow, deliberate movement Nivian sliced the human’s life thread. The light formed a ball and hovered as she pulled out a small pocket watch. The life energy floated down to the watch and sunk into it, disappearing. With a snap, she closed the watch and returned it to her pocket.
“You really shouldn’t drink and drive; you could have seriously hurt someone,” she said, giving him an apathetic look.
He gaped at her, mouth opening and closing like a fish.
“Yes, you really are dead,” she confirmed as she turned away.
“Are you … the devil?” he finally managed to sputter.
“No, of course not. I am just the natural order of things,” she said, looking over her shoulder at him “Wait here. Your spirit counselor will be here soon to guide you to your afterlife. I have other jobs tonight.” She turned, walking away as she pulled her hood back up over her head and vanished.
