there’s a kid in mortuary sciences who has a Deal. the girl with six fingers and one eye brings him bodies for study and practice embalming and eventual burial. the bodies are not reaped from life for this purpose, they are found in the secluded places just across in Elsewhere.
in exchange, the girl gets fresh baked bread, the first bite of all his meals, and one Tuesday a month
he likes to think that the new scars on his body after those Tuesdays are worth giving people a true final rest.
