Anyway, in time for some quick before-Christmas reading, here's part three of four (?): CIPHER.
Prompt: “Dying is easy. Coming back is where things get tricky."
Perspective: First Person
Genres: Supernatural, Secrets, Drama
Length: 1077 words
-Part three of four?
-Peculiarly Old-World manners
Author Notes: It's odd that this literally has all the same warnings as part one. I intended this to be a two parter, but it's going to take at least four.
Part three is about Ambrose assimilating the knowledge that encountering Jeremy (Jeremiah) imparted, as well as dwelling on the relationship they used to have together. It shows that the fascination is not a one-sided thing, and it shows some more depth to Ambrose. It also explains a little more about the message Jeremiah left for him!
Please read "Endowment" first and then "Crystalline" so things make sense, okay?
