Harm none and do what ye will.
Not even if they harmed you first. Not even if they destroyed the other half of your soul and left you empty inside. “Harm none,” Mother said,” lest you risk bringing that darkness back upon yourself threefold.”
Everyday Siobhan asks herself what harm the darkness could possibly do. She’s already dead inside. She died with her sister, and she’ll be damned if she’s going to let Maeve’s killer get off scot-free. Even if it means an eternity of torture, her soul damned to suffer, she will avenge her sister and make Alejandro Tapia rue the day he was born.
“Shiv” is now available everywhere ebooks are sold for just $.99! This is one of my favorite short stories I’ve written, and I’m so glad I can share it with you outside the Witches, Warlocks, Demons and Other Evil Doers anthology, where it originally appeared in the summer of 2017.
