One year down, nine to go. Nine more years of ferrying souls of the dead.
He's received word from Elizabeth of her son -- their son -- but despite her paragraphs of description, he can't picture the boy. Can't imagine the weight of him in his arms, the scent of him, or the feel of his skin.
There are times when he can barely remember Elizabeth's face. How she felt in his arms.
Except in dreams, when she's as clear, as present, to him as she ever was.
But then he wakes, and remembers: one year down, nine to go.
