Pain is what he feels, as his heart crumbles. He feels the distance between his old life, and now. He's not sure why they have to leave, but it no longer matters. There's nothing for him in this that shakes with every step he takes, is filled with silence. He feels nothing except the cold, dark, whispers along his neck. He turns, but no one is there.. that he can see. "Soon", he thinks he heard this word whispered to his ear. A miserable day, he has suffered, sleep beckons him. Darkness soon takes over his sight, until he seen a light. "No ordinary light", he thinks to himself. This light is a bright green, and he spots its twin beside itself. "Wait", he whispers to himself, "these are no lights", he says. Eyes. Beautiful green eyes stare back at him. They belong to a girl, how he knows this, he cannot say. "Mystery Girl", who are you, he ponders. "Soon", he says, "I will find you".
