Gea and Lucius meet on a dating app, only she is Life and he is Death. They are their embodiments, walking amongst us in human form as a disguise allowing to fulfill their duties unseen. They sit at a restaurant for the most awkward and most disastrous date since the beginning of all times, also confirming humanity’s fear that the balance of the world hangs by a thread. Even they have a question, though it remains unanswered: how does love work?
