There were others. Six in a unison of silence around me. Though they were close they would not touch. The sad ones. Old before the term old meant anything.

Come in here and you will see the truth of how much I truly exist. "
They were upset but hesitant. " Do not let it leave. It cannot leave. Ruin it. " and I awoke.
