There was an urban legend…
Write your troubles down on a note. Hold it in your hand at midnight and pray. “God, please help me…” Then god will hear your plea. And change your fate. It was only a legend though. It wasn’t even popular for very long…
A young girl wakes up, groggy in an unknown room. A talking dog appears before her and she becomes startled by the revelation he tells her: They are gods and it is their duty to change the fate of any humans that ask for their help. Letters appear in the mail and with pen in hand she begins her job.
People who believe in this legend live all over the world, in every shape and form. They write and pray to the gods, seeking help for their troubles:
A quiet nerd stuck in a hopeless, one-sided crush.
An impoverished artist who’s lost all hope and contemplates suicide.
A rookie police officer who burns with justice and hopes for his first big case.
A young woman desperately chasing her dream against all odds.
Evan a stray cat who would be simply satisfied with some dried fish to eat.
They say that a god is good and makes choices for the greater good. However, are these really the best choices for mortals?
With the power to change the fate of humankind, dive deep into the story and learn about those that seek out your help but remember, changing someone’s fate will have an effect on others whether they are interconnected or not. As you read through each story, perhaps the young girl’s memory will also return but what will she learn about herself and her mission?
