I don't even bother to sit, what the hell for anyway? I'll be most likely hittin' the road in a minute or so. Death smiles lightly. Geez, man, stop. Doing. That. It's creepy.

Let's clear out a few things at last. First of all, I'm the Reaper. Yup. Nice to meet you too. Second - as you see, my appearance changed a bit. And I go by the name "Tess".
