Death only took up a small portion of life. Until now. The current Death, puppetmaster of lives, understood the power of humanity and adapted accordingly. People he believed corrupted or days he labelled numbered were helped onto the path to their final destination. Death, pleased with his efforts to eradicate overpopulation, asserted power and control. Nothing pleased him more than to watch as order descended into chaos as people’s fear of Death grew. Oh well, he thought, as he led yet another million families to the end of their journeys.
