“They’re hungry for our purity both above and in Hades below, hungry for what doesn’t exist in eternity… envious of our here and now.”

The louder the voices became the clearer the vision in his head, the more she fathomed their meaning.

Until one beautiful morning as he lay inside her she saw and heard them too.
