A creative writing project light novel with a critical introduction. It follows a high school student that is accidentally killed and through circumstances out of his control it becomes his job, along with same character that killed him, to restore order to an afterlife that is rife with the corruption of the real world. Through this novella I employ such devices as duality, sin and the moral obligations that one may have toward it, and the idea of a Christ-figure.
