This is the story that I wrote for the second Machine of Death anthology. The premise of the books is basically that there's a machine that takes a blood sample and tells you how you're going to die. Not a ton of details, no exact time, just the prediction. But the machine is always right.

It's a fascinating idea (at least to someone as awkwardly morbid as I am). I also grew up on shared universe anthologies, and I love the idea of a shared concept anthology. If you're interested, the first anthology is available, free and legal, here.

Anyway, this is the story I wrote. It didn't make the cut, and I'm cool with that, but I hope somebody over here likes it anyway. Also, here is a fic-header, because I don't know how else to present stories.
