It was snowing one particular day when Colin Beck went for a hike on a mountainside. Hikes helped him forget about his loneliness.copyright protection19PENANAHUj8PkPjZi

Lie.copyright protection19PENANABHZtZeqEMl

Hikes kept him away from the Protector from Suffering slumbering in his nightstand drawer. It protected him from the burglars.copyright protection19PENANAp9B7LEbUhW

There were no burglars to make him suffer. But there were friends who didn't exist.copyright protection19PENANAeYRx7GRWZQ

The dirt trail was becoming a snow trail to blend in with the snow in the ground and the snow at the mountain, but Colin had been up and down and left and right this mountain more times than an intelligent lifeform can count. He could find his way back. was going to have to. work in the morning. the stockroom of a department store.copyright protection19PENANAeBxe5xtvbf

Shelves of boxes. Hundreds of shelves of boxes.copyright protection19PENANANkVn0cQOHj

Hundreds and hundreds of shelves of hundreds and hundreds of boxes.copyright protection19PENANAEuboVNKOD6

So many shelves, so many boxes, that to get lost was easy. Turn left here, walk up there. Take three steps back, now close your eyes and spin around. Easy as getting lost on a snowy mountainsidecopyright protection19PENANAS9RE03g5Kk

Where was he?copyright protection19PENANAMyEHVEULsB

On the mountainside.copyright protection19PENANA576hw14gPI

Obviously.copyright protection19PENANAnHSfmSiDX3

But where on the mountainside?copyright protection19PENANAXJBCqwgliJ

All Colin could see around him were (no one) trees without their clothes and bushes without their pride and a uniform snow unwinding on the ground, floating in the air, singing a song of accumulations and content.copyright protection19PENANAWoR2Fo4KFT

The trail was 46 centimeters deep and six hundred and five meters gone.copyright protection19PENANAs2BlhXdABa

Colin didn't know.copyright protection19PENANADzUfblMsG4

Didn't know how he couldn't have not gotten here. couldn't have zoned out that much. have roamed that far off the path. walked up the mountainside without realizing it, right?copyright protection19PENANAcCs3F8sJS7

Right?copyright protection19PENANADk9eGrcT2O

Colin needed to return to his vehicle, so he walked down the slope andcopyright protection19PENANA4GnYVzkH11

So beautiful.copyright protection19PENANA3BZJ4bfXTY

So gorgeous.copyright protection19PENANA0b93In7rTG

It made him want to sleep. But he couldn't sleep. Not until he found his vehicle. He had to find his vehicle.copyright protection19PENANAtRdLwVA4TR

His vehicle.copyright protection19PENANA4Wt3GyeWw8

It wasn't there to be found. But there was a cave to be found. He entered it, and the songs and bodies of the god were worlds away.copyright protection19PENANAVwj5A2sIul

Colin removed his backpack and leaned against the cave side facing up. Safe from the god. Cold, but safe.copyright protection19PENANAoYdCJKxkOq

And sleepy.copyright protection19PENANAbTnFW4eb0L

So sleepy.copyright protection19PENANAjWiD1SFtAa

Colin knew he should build a fire (it was survival 101), but he forgot to purchase matches, and the god didn't want him stealing the stiff paper ore, so he turned on to his side and closed his eyes and fell asleep.23Please respect copyright.PENANAznvX3r1hD2
