1. The southern forests were perpetually on fire, faint yellow flames dancing along each evergreen bough in unnatural symbiosis.

2. Ghosts use memories as currency.

3. The ink was bespelled so only vampires could read the warning. To everyone else, the painting in my mother’s foyer was just unsettling, although they could never pinpoint why.
