Starry Night

I sat up, hyperventilating.

It was cool. It was night. Stars stretched majestically overhead. I looked straight up and saw the splinter edges of a crumbling house. The ceiling had caved in years ago. I smelled mist and pondwater. There was a dirty, plain mattress beneath me.

I tried to stand up and walk around, but my limbs disobeyed me. I strained and struggled. In spite of the tranquility of the moment, my heart was still exploding through my chest like a ball of firecrackers.

"Dalton?" I murmured, and yet I didn't. I realized that my jaw was tightly shut. My face was wet with tears. It was a glorious, warm, and yet hauntingly lonely sensation. "Dalton, where am I now?"

"Just relax, Bellesmith. It's a far more centralized sphere. It took me a while to localize it, but it's the calmest one I could find in such little time."

"I feel..." I stammered, then winced. "I mean she feels..."

"It's okay to be confused. If it helps you, darling, just describe your feelings to me. Don't be afraid or ashamed."

"How do I feel?"

"Yes. Do go ahead."

I gulped as I felt myself curling into a fetal position on the bed. The stars above blurred from my tears as I whimpered, "I feel lonely. So very lonely. It's a blessing and a curse." I bit my lip and managed to say, "I miss the singing. I miss the music and the colors and the warmth..."

"Very good. Very good. Just let it out..."

I sniffled and clenched my eyes shut. "I love myself and I hate myself. I'm so alive, and yet I'm so worthless. I can't stop moving. I can't cease for a single moment."

"Where are you heading to, Bellesmith?"

"I... I don't know..." I shudder and shake. "I don't care to know. I just don't care. All I want is just one chance to nuzzle her and tell her how I feel..."

"Who, Bellesmith? Who do you care so much for?"

I gasped. My eyes were brimming with tears as I sought a sparkling truth amidst the stars. "I don't know. If I found her, if I saw her eyes, I might die." A whimper escaped my lips. "Oh beloved, forgive me. By the Spark..."

The house began to shake and buckle. Beams of black obsidian pierced through the cosmos to envelope me.


"We're losing contact! Another sphere is taking over!"

"Dalton, I'm scared—"

"We're pulling you out. Just stay calm, darling!"

"Dalton... nnngh..." My eyes were darting left and right. The world spun. I felt twin needles poking into—out of?—my forehead. "Dalton, you must go back where you began."

"What was that?"

"Twists and turns are my master plan..." I hissed as the world spun. My tongue cut itself on a jutting fang. "Th-then find the elements b-back where you began."

"Blessed Spark... Bellesmith! Listen to my voice! You must stay focused! You must stay—"

I plunged.
