Three powerful short stories (rated M17+) that touch on love and how it can sustain you, yet also may drive you to revenge and retribution. Love gives you courage to live, to stand up and fight back and to redeem yourself. When you have it, love may be the one thing you can count on.
What if you could give someone you love one more hour of life? The passion of love bursting into flame is more powerful than death, stronger than the grave.

The Ladies of the Pain:
A land of ancient city-states, Città morte… dead cities sprinkle the countryside. Once thriving and vital, now no one lives in them and the keening of the winds through the ruins are their only sounds. Even for towns and cities that live, in almost every one, there is a legend, sometimes distorted far from its origin, of a casa stregata… a haunted house. Some are deathly still, lonely cenotaphs, mere empty markers of some immoral past. Others contain souls that sleep a while and awake… hungry.
