It was snowing one particular day when Colin Beck went for a hike on a mountainside. Hikes helped him forget about his loneliness.copyright protection6PENANA0glk2FEdno

Lie.copyright protection6PENANAOkNJvEGI6w

Hikes kept him away from the Protector from Suffering slumbering in his nightstand drawer. It protected him from the burglars.copyright protection6PENANA6jp194sCRS

There were no burglars to make him suffer. But there were friends who didn't exist.copyright protection6PENANARS9dcbSRpg

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 protection6PENANAgdB3X6IDPO

Shelves of boxes. Hundreds of shelves of boxes.copyright protection6PENANAvePbAQtwB0

Hundreds and hundreds of shelves of hundreds and hundreds of boxes.copyright protection6PENANAq2kAUNqf0z

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 protection6PENANAUr24M6rQXV

Where was he?copyright protection6PENANA8s9XEKO7gp

On the mountainside.copyright protection6PENANA8HrshmgHBh

Obviously.copyright protection6PENANAgwIjAup2ln

But where on the mountainside?copyright protection6PENANAXuQ6suQgC7

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 protection6PENANAFLO7e5tuN5

The trail was 46 centimeters deep and six hundred and five meters gone.copyright protection6PENANAL4BtnbYNdk

Colin didn't know.copyright protection6PENANAabO1hgv8w8

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 protection6PENANAfcT4k7aOBX

Right?copyright protection6PENANATm1vQpHOdV

So beautiful.copyright protection6PENANAKooAcdJK3f

So gorgeous.copyright protection6PENANA10NZ4pDLYn

It made him want to sleep. But he couldn't sleep. Not until he found his vehicle. He had to find his vehicle.copyright protection6PENANAibQMS0sSiV

His vehicle.copyright protection6PENANAb3jzDwNmgQ

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 protection6PENANABhRphWOVIM

Colin removed his backpack and leaned against the cave side facing up. Safe from the god. Cold, but safe.copyright protection6PENANAi1X8NQ9gIs

And sleepy.copyright protection6PENANAbTwvt91gwh

So sleepy.copyright protection6PENANA78zZxRVlMD

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.10Please respect copyright.PENANAQUymp1wqh2
