Maybe a second glance would be in your best interest...
It's been quiet... way too quiet lately. Under normal circumstances, the absence of all the noise would be a welcome thing. Even though the parents are thrilled with the quality of their children's education... the methods have them a bit suspicious and anxious. The children are encouraged to be noisy, active... even hyper, in their vigilance to learn and explore. But, right now, Battleon, and the surrounding community's streets have been quiet. Even the woodland creatures have grown quiet, almost as though they know to be afraid. And if they are more afraid of the quiet and calm than the students who pursue them to study them...
Where are the children?
As Simoan Grawrfunkel writes:
Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence...
So if Silence is busy with her community of followers... just what is out there...
