PROLOGUE

"You promised me…"

"…………………"

"You promised me you'd never forget…"

"…………………………"

"Did… Did you lose it then?"

"……… I… Can't remember…"

"No… No you wouldn't…"

"………"

"But it's for the best…?"

"… Yes… For the best"

"Marrow…"

"……?"

"Marrow I…"

"…………"

"Marrow I loved you… I always did…"

I closed my eyes to stop the wind from blinding them. Reaching up I touched my finger to my eyelid, but felt no tears. When was the last time I had cried over that dream? I couldn't remember, all I could seem to think was that it had been such a very long time. But now those voices were shaky in my head and my memory blurred, as if all the tears I had shed for them had distorted their presence, changing them to something almost unrecognizable, something that had lost all sadness and regret and had been replaced by a pure cold nothingness that slowly ate at that part of my soul. But why should I care? I could no longer feel it. Plus, wasn't anything better than that overwhelming sadness that I had once felt, wasn't anything better than pain? Truthfully, I don't know if I really did believe that, then or any other time of my life. But what else was I to believe? At least that memory gave me a shred of hope for future and allowed me to forget the past.

In fact, it would be long after that day on the seashore before I realized the complete terror of my words, and far longer than that before something but sadness and emptiness were to occupy my thoughts. For nothing can be gained by merely forgetting and running away. In order to truly find happiness troubles must be overcome, they must be overcome and defeated. Running away would only lead to nothingness, and nothingness to death.

But then again… How was I to know that then? After all, that's the way the world works.
