. He was able to call her and see her during weekends. His father injuries were treated at the local hospital and he was almost fully healed. His mother slowly became herself again after six weeks since the incident that befell them. She often had nightmares and nervous breakdowns from time to time but she was getting better.

She smiled and whispered to herself, "There are always more souls to trap."
