Short Story. In this tale, an entire nation has chosen to live under the wickedness of the Curse of Blood in return for peace and security, not realizing how it corrupts them to do so. But one man sees, and it's up to him and his son to break the Curse and save their people, at great personal cost to them both. A beautiful story of sacrifice and redemption.
