There is a village at the far edge of the world where the people return to the same life each time they die. Endlessly, they forget and live each of their lifetimes as though it’s their first. They climb the mountains, and fish in the frozen lakes, and eat what the forest provides. They are improbably happy, and they pray to no one.
Except for once, each year, when the light fades.
