Some promises can't be kept…
From birth, my life has been a series of wrong turns and dead ends. Only one person truly loved me, and I walked away from them. Now, they're unavailable.
I have a dark soul. That's what I've always been told. Makes me good at my work, though. It's kept me alive, even when I haven't cared if I lived or died. Even when I welcomed death, and it still eluded me. Makes it easy not to get attached. I guess I'm lucky.
Until an unexpected reversal of fortune thrusts me into an unwinnable situation. Now, I'm not so sure I want to die.
But a brother's unkept promise might be the only thing that keeps me alive.
