Mercedes was just an ordinary young woman who happened to have had a NearDeathExperience when she was a child. So when [[TheGrimReaper Death]] flags her down on the side of the highway trying to hitch a ride, she does the sensible thing and runs away as fast as she can. Too bad he's recognized her, and is now [[ImplacableMan determined to reap her soul]]. But in ''this'' universe, there are rules that Death must follow: in order to reap a soul, the person must look him in the eye and name him. Having had to put up a few too many attempts at [[ChessWithDeath bargaining]], it doesn't even have to be a ''specific'' name - any title will do. Wacky hijinks abound.

Can be read [[http://deathandmaiden.com/2008/12/03/prologue-1/ here]].
