A smoky, dirty, dark room. A room with crying. A room where any light makes long columns through the air. A room with several people. Six. 3, crouching by the wall. 2 standing unsteadily, unwillingly on the littered floor. 1 sprawled in the doorway. Doorway.
Smokier, dirtier, darker. Crying. No light. No columns. More people. Nine. 3 pipes. 2 needles. 1 man hanging from his own joints as he relaxes in a disgusting pleasure, tapping the wood floor with his used needle. Tapping. A room with tapping. Another Flash.
Smoke, dirt, dark. Crying. A child. A baby. A woman. A woman whose skin was just barely hanging onto her face. A mother. She was dying. But the child. A girl.
“But the child?”
He thought, and
He saved her.
The child Sanguinia.
The slayer of beasts.
The trickster of the dark.
The bloody one.
