For women like Flory, fear comes far more easily than trust. Is the strange dwarf visitor another person she should fear, or might he be what she needs, to be able to trust again?
A short story, which is epic fantasy / dark fantasy. Contains a mute girl, someone who would like to take advantage of that, and a criminal.
Update: The story has now been converted into a game, where you can affect the ending by the choices you make. The "dark fantasy" elements are stronger in the game. Fair warning.
You can play the game here .
Update: The sequel, “In the Minds of Children”, is available to Patrons.
