Odyssey Into 2012 - Chapter 2As night devours the greying embers of the sun's rays she props her faded form against a building. The writing splayed across its rough grainy surface, the same word again and again, enough to force it into the unobservant passer's mind. She had been unobservant, until the words embedded in their twisted knowledge had contaminated her soul. Now she knew the truth, now she could truly see, she had to defend what was right with every breath or time itself would crumble.
Breathing; she allows the notion to amuse her as her own merges into the darkening air like a staggered sulphuric eruption. She was still alive. She was still breathing. A manic laugh crawls from her lips to accompany her erratic breaths.
While waiting she allows her mind to briefly lapse its guard to take in the city with its looming towers that threaten to dwarf her exceeding their cracked shadows. The odour of rotten food and pollution scratches at her nostrils, the offenders of the stark aromas she knows to be nearby.
