A slow, dark tale about a bloke who lost his parents, as a child, when his mother killed his father and herself. Taken in by his parent's best friend who can't stand him and the feeling is mutual. The story picks up twenty years after these events, with him being an aimless, yet clever, little shit while his guardian, reluctantly, allows him to stay that way.
Chapter One introduces the characters and sets up the story. Rising many questions while answering none.
