29. Transient Despair


29 - ch29

“Time to rebuild.”

“From what?”

“Ashes. Dust. From what the Dragon is.”

“Rebuild what?”

“The pain.”


“Because it’s what the streets live for. It’s what we die for.”

“We live and die for family. For honor. For devotion.”

“Are you so certain?”

“Do I need to be?”

“Would you bet your life on it?”

“Do I have to?”

“Would you bet your daughter’s life, your wife’s?”

“What is this?”

“This, dear Lucid, is the beginning of a beautiful partnership.”


“Why?” She smiled at him. “Because I can.”
