Summary

"Go! Leave! Do not invite that which enslaves me. Embrace your life and its sublime feracity for I shall not repeat the sin which robbed me of mine." Past: Two brothers - one a farmer the other a shepherd - once walked within the grace of God. Then one smote the other and hid the body in the earth. Thus the killer was condemned, a mark put upon him; his punishment, to walk the earth forever, in purgatory. Present: Despite dumping her cheating boyfriend just days before they were due to attend a Goth Weekend, Becky goes on her own; despondent and broken. When a thief tries to rob her, a mysterious figure comes to her aid. Who is he? What is he? The answers shock her to her core, especially when she finds herself drawn into the middle of an age-old battle - one which has been raging on for centuries.

INSPIRATION

**Extract Reference: The King James Bible - The First Book of Moses, Genesis


**8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.

9 And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?

10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.

11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;

12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.

13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
