That Bitter Taste

Download on!

Lane’s daily life as a mortician is busy; there’s always new “guests” to receive into the morgue, bodies to cremate and embalm, funerals to arrange, distraught family members to comfort… at the end of the day, he just wants to sit down with his television and a drink.

Unfortunately, things are never quite as easy as that. Lane is sick, and not in any particularly simple way; he has an otherwise unheard of condition, one that causes his body to be deficient in certain proteins only found in human flesh. To put it gently… his choice of profession was no coincidence.

His only hope is an old legend that he has held onto throughout his life: The one who loves you can save you, if only you can receive them. He doesn’t know where it came from, or what it means, but it may prove to be a greater burden than he can afford to bear…
