    Summary

    The Soul has Bandaged moments—
    When too appalled to stir—
    She feels some ghastly Fright come up
    And stop to look at her—

    Salute her, with long fingers—
    Caress her freezing hair—
    Sip, Goblin, from the very lips
    The Lover–hovered–o’er—
    Unworthy, that a thought so mean
    Accost a Theme–so-fair—

    Summary

    His eyes opened.

    The first thought that ran through his head was that everything hurt.

    The second was that he was afraid he was dead.

    Summary

    Stefano's abundance of time in STEM did not alter the fact that his art remained a sweet, difficult and nerve-racking task. Neither the standards of his own imagination nor the considerable advantages which accompanied them made this burden easier. Due to the limited supply of people that Mobius was willing to put into grey terrain, the selection for acceptable subjects had considerably diluted and true grandeur was now as difficult to find as a barley grain in a mountain full of needlework. The agents of Mobius had long turned out to be a scarce diet for a constantly growing appetite like his own. What Stefano craved for were the means to perfection. But perfection usually did not come around the corner like movies and songs made it ought to be.

    It was all the more uplifting for the photographer when he occasionally found a stone between the human coals which could be polished into a splendid representative of its class.
    That said stone turned out to be a former cop of the KCPD and the father of little Lily, the STEM’s heart and lung, made the whole thing just more perfect in its irony.

    Summary

    Who we are and who we will be, are not two sides of the same coin.

    In fact, they are two coins bound together by a ribbon of meddled salt, shaking and rubbing till they melt into one coin, one being, one tearful life. We call this a fair trade, exchanging youth for knowledge, growth for power. An infant’s pacifier for a crown. What most do not take into account is that the heartbeat of past does not stop but becomes the echo of future events, and the pain once felt will feast on regret and bloom back from the hard soil that the fools of humanity deem a soul.

    The splinters of Ruvik’s soul come crawling over his neck when he looks into the eyes of the man he should despise, but cannot help but imagine to frame his face inside the rotten shell of his palms. Hold it. And squeeze.
