From the author of "Ashes", I provide for you a story whose premise I've often mused about myself. There is a purposeful subtlety in the language here which I found smirking to myself while I narrated it. It was more so that I realized its intention when I heard it audibly. I hope you all enjoy it and see what I mean.
