“They burn a witch a year to keep the river at bay, but if the village should flood, they say it is the work of a witch avenging the sacrifice of her kind. The river runs cold, its waters flowing from the mountains north of the village. Nothing survives on its banks; the soil is not muddy and rich but hard, like mountain ice.

I have never seen the river. I have never seen the village. And the village knows nothing of me.”
