Gifted

Mallory S.
Gifted
Summary: ~

When I get back, everyone is still asleep. Falla is curled up next to Mother in Mother’s bed, and Philippi is sleeping in his crib. They are so peaceful looking, like nothing could ever harm them.
           
A reluctant thought creeps into my head. If I hadn’t been born, or at least if I had been born without a Gift, nothing would ever harm them. But because I was born Gifted, a sword is always hanging over the ones I love, their heads constantly on the chopping block.
           
And it’s all because of me.

~
