Ayen (meaning "blackbird") is an ordnary guy living an ordinary life, except at night when he meets a strange but overwhelming outlandish creature in his dreams. Every night they discuss different
topics: psychological, philosophical, scientific or just "life stuffs". Usually every issue is seen from two perspectives and at the end they make a conclusion. The bizarre randezvous becomes a
significant part of Ayen`s life since he cannot wait to tell his unusual friend what happens to him during the day and to learn his lesson during the night. However, the problems come when reality
and dreams start blurring their boundaries..

"Do you believe the eyes talk?" asked the creature.
"Depends on the person. There are people I barely look into the eyes. Most of the time I give a look at the person who is talking, just out of respect. When talking to someone closer - like a family member or a friend - looking in the eyes comes quite natural while talking."
" That's not what I asked"
" Then, Idk"
" I'm asking about these moments when  you come into a crowded room but your eyes detect one person,and coming as a suprise, that person's eyes seem to have done the same with you. You're still standing at the two distant corners of the room but you feel as if you are in a discussion, or you just know what you are both thinking right now. You give each other a soft smile or just a glance after glance and the feeling is like being into some secret conspiracy together with this person.You start avoiding looking at that person every 5 seconds out of shy and manners but it comes as unnatural as separating magnets."
"Well...I often find myself staring at beautiful long legs in high heels, short dresses and other female treasures..sometimes I can't stop looking at a pretty face and I just don't follow the conversation"
"That's lust. You humans often seem to mistake these two"
"Whats the difference?"
"The purpose and the sensation, and the source of it.
Compare a fast-rhythm dancing song, which aims only to entertain you, make you have fun and release stress for some minutes. You will like the song, you might remeber the melody for a while and it can make you want to dance again, but actually most probably you won't remeber anything from the lyrics because in that case - it doesn't matter. Such song won't leave a trace in your heart. It won't touch you. It's a single way of entertaining and nothing more. It barely scratches the surface of emotions.
Now think of a song that you relate to... that inspires you, that gives you the fizzy thrill inside.
Think about it: why do they use entertaining music or a soft one(without lyrics) for big stores? Because they make you buy the products, they stir a merchandising impulse even if youre in no need of the products. If they play something meaningful who would think of shopping..."
