Title: Soothsayer, Chapter 6, Part 1.
“Death is the only thing that could have ever kept him from you.” – Ally Carter, Out of Sight, Out of Time
There was a body on the bed. It didn’t move, not even the barest rise and fall to indicate breathing. The head was turned to look my way, eyes open and sightless, pupils tiny and fixed. There was a dead body on the bed, and I recognized it. It took me a few seconds of deep breathing and biting my lip so hard that I drew blood before I could acknowledge that yes, the body was Sören’s. I forced myself to step closer and take another look.
Yeah, it was Sören…but dead might have been an overstatement.
