She was born in the eighth month and her academic parents named her accordingly.

They read Augusta the classics as a baby, and the post modernists as a child. She re-enacted The Odyssey with her brother for her third grade talent show. By the time she was fourteen she spoke six languages.

She excelled at college, shunned parties, and spent her nights in the library. When she met Thomas, he seduced her with promises of worlds unimaginable, beyond books and knowledge. Naturally curious, she let him lead her away.

She was reborn on the seventh day and renamed herself accordingly.
