It was snowing one particular day when Colin Beck went for a hike on a mountainside. Hikes helped him forget about his loneliness.copyright protection4PENANAVFrL64NpED

Lie.copyright protection4PENANARpICNrYKpZ

Hikes kept him away from the Protector from Suffering slumbering in his nightstand drawer. It protected him from the burglars.copyright protection4PENANAfrNfA9ndR6

There were no burglars to make him suffer. But there were friends who didn't exist.copyright protection4PENANAuNMWyT0liE

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 protection4PENANAZa3HMR8LCy

Shelves of boxes. Hundreds of shelves of boxes.copyright protection4PENANAiEQIROIv1Z

Hundreds and hundreds of shelves of hundreds and hundreds of boxes.copyright protection4PENANA6h5gSnn3KK

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 protection4PENANA1tWGNJZGCL

Where was he?copyright protection4PENANAdVp3DhRmNT

On the mountainside.copyright protection4PENANAmTas93Pw7A

Obviously.copyright protection4PENANAh84dPSWOyz

But where on the mountainside?copyright protection4PENANAzLvZP8gHv4

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 protection4PENANAASXLk7P9EW

The trail was 46 centimeters deep and six hundred and five meters gone.copyright protection4PENANAKV4O9UG6Je

Colin didn't know.copyright protection4PENANAFj0biPjzxP

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 protection4PENANAD7HBS1IHbn

Right?copyright protection4PENANAEViIJrDpxm

It made him want to sleep. But he couldn't sleep. Not until he found his vehicle. He had to find his vehicle.copyright protection4PENANAmETERelmmd

His vehicle.copyright protection4PENANAwPvJFFxeVx

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 protection4PENANA722sCKJtvA

Colin removed his backpack and leaned against the cave side facing up. Safe from the god. Cold, but safe.copyright protection4PENANA2SfVw69Stw

And sleepy.copyright protection4PENANA6ZlBI0ggfc

So sleepy.copyright protection4PENANANmfPPRAyk5

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.8Please respect copyright.PENANAZtXl5GmmWB
