By Elizabeth Keel

In a world much like our own, there exist Empathologists: people so finely tuned to a specific range of emotion that they can manipulate it in others.  In a small school where Empathologists are trained to use their emotions as a service and occasionally a weapon, the arrival of a new student brings a welcome change to the two professors and their protege. But after a recent loss, some emotions may be too close to the surface.
