A story about living with the wounds that death can leave behind and healing those wounds with love. A boy hides from a world that hurt him, and a girl must learn how and what love is in order to help him realize there is life after death.
“A strange young man, indeed,” said Shu, the old gardener who was really a doctor. “He’s like that graveyard cat, who hunts mice amongst graves at night and occasionally ventures out into the bright light of the living world. But even then, he stays in the shadows, avoiding contact, forgetting that his natural place is with the living and not with the dead.”
“Sí! La vida no debe rondan a los muertos.”
The old man looked to his Hispanic friend and nodded.
“My friend, Mr. Rosalis…”
“…agrees, ‘The living should not haunt the dead.’ I fear bringing that boy to this place was a mistake."
