A new Short Story. Thought I'd squeeze one more in before the end of the year. Get it? Heh...
No seriously, a bit of background: This began as an exercise in description, using as a basis a character who was blind. Interesting things transpired, and eventually I realized that the direction of the story was actually quite applicable to this time of year--that is, New Years. Endings and all that. Honestly, I think this is one of the stranger stories that I've written. It's another alternate universe concept, and hopefully the vital differences between this universe and the main Bionicle universe aren't too obscured. I wanted to leave things a bit of a mystery, in the end.
Hope you like it, folks. I appreciate any and all comments. See you next year.
