    It started when I was 16 years old. A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A friend who looks at me and sees a stranger. No matter what I do, the words I say, the crimes I commit, you will never remember who I am.

    At the end of the day, Death visits everyone. Right before that, Charlie does. You might meet him in a hospital, in a war zone, or at the scene of a traffic accident. Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - he gets everywhere, our Charlie. Would you shake him by the hand, take the gift he offers, or would you pay no attention to the words he says? Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. He never knows which.

    Je m'appelle Hope Arden mais vous oublierez ce nom jusqu'à mon existence. Nous nous sommes déjà rencontrés des milliers de fois. Je suis la fille dont personne ne se souvient. Tout a commencé quand j'avais seize ans. Un lent déclin, un isolement inéluctable. Mon père qui oublie de me conduire au lycée. Ma mère qui met la table pour trois, pas quatre. Un prof qui omet de demander un essai que je n'ai pas rendu. Un ami qui me regarde et voit une étrangère.

    Il pensait m'ôter la vie. À la place, je pris la sienne.C'était il y a longtemps. Il faisait nuit et je ne voyais pas mon assassin. Ma main toucha la sienne. Ce fut le moment du premier saut. Tout à coup, je voyais le monde à travers ses yeux, mon corps ensanglanté gisant dans une ruelle sombre. Désormais, je peux être n'importe qui. Je passe de corps en corps, fuyant ceux qui cherchent à m'éliminer. Certains sauvent des vies, d'autres tuent. Moi, je fais les deux. Et si je te touche... je prendrai ta vie.
