Sebastian Arnett thinks of himself as a simple man with simple needs: His cameras, his patron and plenty of booze to wash away the painful memories of dead wife every night.
He is a practical man as well, devoid of philosophies and superstitions. So when an old woman gives him a priceless black orchid, he is skeptical. Dark orchids exist, but black orchids do not. (Go ahead, look it up. No such thing as a black orchid.)
Except for the one in Sebastian’s hand and dozens more where the old woman comes from. Sebastian bites.
Will you take me there? he asks.
She nods her assent, and he lives to regret it – just barely.
