Death, The Pharmacist, by D. Ike Horst
Death, the Pharmacist distributes life and takes it too.
Death doesn’t believe in the world beyond his pharmacy. To him, all mortals are mindless cattle, merely perpetuating their existence by consuming prescribed life essence. When Death is given the opportunity to prematurely redact hundreds of millions of human prescriptions, he simply sees the quell as a means to increase his stores of life essence. That is until Death meets Robinette.
Through the narrative of Death, the Pharmacist by D. Ike Horst, the audience journeys with Death and Robinette from his pharmacy to the world of the living. As he becomes more human, Death’s existence as a perfectly efficient killer is weighed against his newly-realized value for life.
