The Path to Grim Road
Published in December 2021 by Twenty Bellows Literary
Before I was conceived, Yin-Yin knew me as a timeless truth.
I was the opposite of Grim. I was the hope, the wings of the dove, and the tall in the short lives of Denver. I was theirs in faith and I knew they needed me — the lost, the homeless, the sinners. One day soon, I would be born into reality here, forged here by Mallory, the priest of metallurgy and infused with the spirit of a child. Thus my name, as entitled by the maker and the daughter of a good soul. Yet, Grim was the darkness even in the darkest corner of the hellish plight. He was a skewed compass, a death mark.
