Abstract
In "Corra," readers will observe the destructive nature of a entropic child of local legend. At the request of his wife Dani, Jonah agrees to let his widowed mother-in-law, Vera, live with the couple. What began as a kind gesture grows into a malignant attachment between a young girl called "Corra." and the lonely Vera. Corra's touch is infamous for rapidly speeding up the decay of organic materials, but what else can she wilt and wither away? This long horror story is an exploration not only of the physical realm, but of the bonds that form relationships and friendships. Through the girl's effects on her surroundings, one can observe the strength—and weakness—of such bonds, and what it might take to fortify them against outside influence.
