Chapter One: Watching

Jim said goodbye and left. He was methodical in his bearing; as always. He never looked back.

Kathy followed him with her eyes, when he turned the corner, with her thoughts, which were disturbing. She was never able to read Jim, but today the membrane of consciousness that shielded him form her, it was translucent.

Chapter Two: Connected

Kathy was with him, locked onto him, looking through his eyes for the first time as he drove away.

She could bond this way with anyone, at any time.

Of all the people she had ever met, Jim alone was a mystery to her. While she was connected to him, she felt his deep despair.

Chapter Three: Portents

Jim projected a profound sense of doom, of danger. It lingered in the vacuum that was left when he departed. The strength of it filled Kathy with unease, as if an event were about to happen that would stop everything.

She looked around and saw the world covered in ashes, with everyone choking for air.

Chapter Four: Unrequited

Jim left a pen behind. He always left something; as if they were little presents just for her.

Kathy stared at the pen, imagining it with all the other things of his she collected, reassembling them in her mind into an image of him; a golem made piece by piece from things he had discarded.

Chapter Five: Impressions

Kathy could not shake the feeling that Jim had wanted to tell her something.

It was oppressive.

Hours passed, and that feeling lingered, it was like a stone laid across her chest, pushing the air out of her. The despair was so strong in him, it was like a vacuum, and she could not breathe.

Chapter Six: Finding

Kathy stayed at her table. She sat by herself, alone in the crowd, concentrating on Jim. She sensed a fragility in him she never had before, had never imagined was possible. With that, she felt it was an omen, a portent, indicating that life as she knew, all life on Earth was about to change.

Chapter Seven: True

Throughout her life, Kathy felt as if the “weight of the world was on her.” She felt it in a unique way, due to the intimate, some had described as “psychic,” connection she had with people near her.

She felt she was “too sensitive,” never suspecting how real, how complete, how all-encompassing those feelings were.
