Things To Do Today
Jasfoup spotted the flashing icon and thumbed the button on his Bloodberry to see his appointments schedule. “Things to do today” appeared on the screen in bright, cheery letters. The first entry was indeed something to be cheerful about: “Lucy Waterman” with a picture of a birthday cake but the second was anything but. Jasfoup’s heart stopped, or at least it would have done if he’d had one of his own. Under the birthday reminder were the words: “Lucy Waterman. 19:54. H”.
‘H’ was the shorthand for ‘Hellbound’. Lucy Waterman was scheduled to die, shortly after cutting her birthday cake.
