A metaphysical skull: for one who seeks answers about the Dark.
"What is the Darkness?"
You open your eyes and gaze at the heavens, seeking an answer to your question.
You see a world in the space B E T W E E N.
You see a space beyond Light and Dark.
You used to inhabit this space. No longer.
We are still there. We are not interested in Light or Dark.
Our interest is in you. And those like you.
We have reached out before. With an agent whose will was not his own.
First contact. We have learned since then.
Your hands are bound in red ribbons.
Your soul is weary.
Your feet find purchase on a three-dimensional plane.
Your bond's glow is dim; there is no Light here. Or Dark.
