The past is seldom as we'd have it, and the future is too uncertain a thing. Embrace the here and now. Make the most of today, it's all you have, and all you can trust in.
And that's exactly what Jenevier was trying to do. Her mistakes were behind her, along with her bloody past. She wasn't even certain if she had a future anymore, she just lived each day as it came.
She'd bargained with God, tried to reverse the sun, erase her murderous crime. Alas, you must be certain you can pay the price before the bartering begins.
But, what do you do when your life is just one big long string of bad decisions? You grow and move forward, determined your future won't mirror your past. Or you change nothing. You just keep doing what you've always done until you stagnate and die. Either way, the decision is yours alone to make.
After wrongfully killing Merodach, Jenevier trades her soul for his life and wakes up all alone in a strange new world. She must pay the price, learn her lesson, and discover her intended blessing before she can start over. But along with her epiphany, she'll find a whole new realm complete with its own set of problems.
There's no perfect place in this universe because we're not perfect creatures. No matter where you find yourself, there you are. If you step into paradise dragging all your tainted and scarred baggage with you, then it's no longer paradise. Your flawed heart removes the bliss, negates utopia.
Home was all she longed for, all she dreamed of. But was her home, her past, a place she could run to? Or would she find it was the one place she wanted to run from?
