Prologue

Akrasia [n];

Weakness of will, lack of self-control; acting against one’s better judgment


If someone had told her a few months ago who she would face today, she would have declared that person insane.

But for what, she asks herself as she wades through the tarry mass. For what, she asks herself again when the color fades, leaving behind a white canvas with red speckles across the cracking surface. As her tired legs give way, there she is, kneeling on the damp ground with only one question ringing in her ears; How did we get here?
