Prologue ~ Xandra Kallan
TWO YEARS LATER
Have you ever seen someone's life flash before your eyes?
Every time I recite their eulogy, their memories hit me hard like a speeding freight train, seconds from derailing off the track. Unwillingly, I was the keeper of their memories. The vault housing all their deepest, darkest secrets, and once they were gone forever, I would lock them and throw away the key.
Descendant #1205: The Nightingale
My soulmates, Apollo and I, snuck into a hotel building in downtown Manhattan. The hotel was under siege with civilians being held as hostages. Strapped and suited in gray body armor, we were ready to cross another soul's name off our ever-growing list of Arcos's descendants. I hand-signaled for us to separate to complete our individual missions. They were responsible for freeing the hostages and extinguishing the captors, while I took out the head-bitch-in-charge, Farrah Giago. Her sin was greed. She would sing her victims to sleep, rob them of all their valuables, and assassinate them. In the past two weeks, her and her crew had cleaned out six major banks around the United States, stealing over one-hundred million dollars. Every undercover attempt to bring her to the light had failed. Today was her judgment day. Apollo and I trapped her in the hallway. She was covered in the blood of the old woman she'd just brutally stabbed to death. Her eyes held the telltale signs of a lost soul—no remorse, no guilt. Killing to her seemed just as easy as breathing.
How could she be so heartless?
The vacantly fixed eyes of the old lady centering on me made the blood in my veins run cold. This frail woman was someone's mother, grandmother or aunt, and now she was gone. In a heartbeat. I couldn’t save her.
“Who the fuck are you, and why do you keep following me around?” she yelled, getting up in my face as she gritted her teeth. Looking into her brown eyes hidden underneath her bangs of chocolate-brown, I realized she was a soul who couldn't be saved. Her soul was as dead as the woman she’d just killed. All that lay in the gateways to her soul was emptiness. Emptiness her greed could never satisfy—she’d always going to want more. Her deep-rooted need for greed helped me to understand the murderous anger of Arcos. He was only half a soul constantly searching for a way to fill the empty void.
“I was your savior but now your maker. Your evil among this world is a deal breaker. I'm the undertaker of your soul. With this one special bullet to your head, I will extinguish the evil you bestow. For your sin of greed, will be no more. Any final words?”
She spat in my face before flashing me that notorious and mischievous smile.
With the swift pull of my trigger, the dark to her light went out. “May your Hidden Soul rest in peace.”
