"I remember the first day I ever met you, Black Man. You watched me as I helped the dolls eat their dinner in their fabulous house. You walked up behind me and fear washed over me. I stood up and looked up at you. You were the size of an adult. I was only two or three."
How do you tell what is real and what is not? What do you do when you have friends others cannot see, and memories you cannot explain; you are not of this world? An ancient calender counts down to your death. The whole world is waiting. How can you be sure you exist?

“If you touch it, you will remember. And you don’t want to. You really don’t want to. But none of this is your fault.”
“But it is real?”
“Never. None of it is ever real.”"
