    Summary

    They say that if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will instantly leap out. But if you put it in a pot with lukewarm water and gradually heat it, the frog won't be able to detect the change in the temperature until it dies.

    Maybe they are the frog in this situation. Ignorant. Unaware of what's happening under their noses.

    The flame gets hotter. They don’t know it. The water reaches boiling point and - “Wake up, Bam.”

    Bam doesn’t answer.

    “...Bam?”

    The frog dies.

    Where some things are inevitable.

    “Sleep, those little slices of death — how I loathe them.”
    ― Edgar Allan Poe

    Amazing. Skillfully written. Will pluck your heart out, destroy it and shove it back into place, expecting it to work as if it wasn't just relentlessly stomped on. Wondrous, glittery, exquisite angst. 👌😭

    Summary

    The 104th floor was made of glamorous chandeliers, smoking pipes and gentlemen, vintage wines and lies, dice rolling in roulettes, cards played to decide your fate.

    ”Welcome to the floor of bets, famously known as the Casino of the Tower…”

    “What are you willing to lose?”

    (Since climbing the Tower: Khun has bet confidently with his luck, but maybe one day he’ll run out. Bam has lost too many times to keep what was his alive, and maybe one day, he will lose what was never his.)

    Summary

    Baam and his team climb the Tower.

    More like, Baam climbs the Tower and watches as his team falls apart.

    He remembers all of their last moments, until he's the only one left.

    Summary

    Where crimson red blood frightens everyone else, it excites Bam, igniting his flame and setting it alight. Where screams and ear shattering shrieks deafen others, it’s nothing but a lullaby to him. People drop all around him, because of him, their glassy stares bearing into his back and their vengeful ghosts grasping at his ankles.

    Bam doesn’t care, though, and never looks back. He’s too far gone to do so, anyways.

    His world starts to fill with red, red, red; crimson dripping from the canvas.

    Until it isn’t.

    And then blue paints the picture.
