Genre: Romance, Short
4 min

The living...

An endless chorus of voicesfrom

the beginning to the end.

But if a voice is silencedand

the killer is never caught,

the dead continue to wail.

Their cry goes unheard.

The slayer lives on, day follows day.

And eventually, whenthe killer

realizes thatno one is coming,

he must feelhe has cheated the gods.

But the old gods...

are vengeful creatures.

There are three sisters.

They were trusted to

keeptheir beautiful friend

persephone far from Hades,

lord of the underworld.

All they had to dowas stay together.

Why can't they do it? Jealousy?

Brought by the lure of a voice?

So the sistersabandoned persephone.

Then Hades dragged her

downinto the land of the dead.

The gods, in their rage and fury,

transformed the sisters into

themonstrous and ravenous sirens

and banished themacross the seas,

cursing themto remain there together...

for all eternity,

singing thedead's song of vengeance.

Are you even watching?

Yeah, yeah.

Can you pass me the other one?


Oh, my God.

There you go again, huh?

Throwing my heart on the floor.

I don't know why I said that.

That was stupid.

No. I'm sorry. I just

wish it didn't happen.

It's my fault. Come here.

So focused and...

so wrapped up in my career,

I forgot what was important.

I should have stuck by you, Dan.

I should never have walked outon you.

It's this place, you know,

it sucks the life out of us.

It puts so much pressure on us.

It's getting better.

Soon we'll have a new

sous-chefin the kitchen and...

maybe in a few yearswe'll

have some kids, huh?

Get them on pot washing.

You never said you wanted kids.

Are you serious?

I guess I'm growing up.

I guess you are.

So, what are we gonna doabout this, eh?

I don't know.

Dust it off, it'll be fine.

I'm kidding.

- Yeah.

- Stick it in the bin.
