The Triangle Fire killed 146 workers, mostly daughters and mothers. Most jumped to their death rather than burn in a blaze so hot that six bodies were never recovered. The official story omitted the reason why the six were never found. Incinerated was easier to explain than the truth. But one of the six left behind a daughter who would return on the 10th anniversary and and learn why.
Some people have a heart of gold. But not him. He was cursed with a scorpion heart. It didn't mean that he wasn't good; it meant that he couldn't love. And she knew it. So she told him the truth, and how a heart divided could never love. But she also told him of the cure. If only he could find it.
