She is their fixer. A problem solver. An assassin.
She is capable of any task they demand from her, no matter how distasteful, even if it comes at the cost of her own soul.
But even for a woman like her there is a line that cannot be crossed.
Her Hidden paymasters have negotiated billion dollar contracts for the Patient Zero Serum -codename ZERUM- a new generation of antidotes for pathogens behind projected worst-case pandemics on the W.H.O.'s Deadly Contagion Watch List. These are the diseases capable of wiping out vast populations within weeks and bringing nations to their knees. With Russia pitted in a bidding war against China where the winner gets the cure and the loser faces infection to prove the efficacy of the cure death on a biblical scale is inevitable.
Sophie can rationalize all of that death. This is who she is and has been for a very long time.
But then they demand new test subjects - innocent children - and that changes everything.

For this collection, we at The Fine Line thought we'd ask writers a slightly different question: what words inspire you.
We gave them a maximum of 100 words with which to explain their choice and ignored their complaints about it not being long enough.
By the time the deadline arrived, we'd received over 100 submissions: idiosyncratic, funny, moving, sad and, yes, inspiring. They're backstories to the writing process and snapshots of the many muses.
