(Don't judge until Chapter 5. I wrote this to make the turn of events more pronounced.) The story of a boy named Cedric as he attempts to find his place in the world. Follow him as he struggles with loss, gain, identity, and even love. This is a story of how a person that knows only loss and insignificance can rise to the challenge and find his true path in life. Nothing in life is ever easy or straightforward, but no matter how the road winds, we can always find a path to follow. For Cedric, choosing the right path might just lead him into darkness.
