Chapter Text


Open your eyes; listen closely to the sound of my voice. With every word and every number, you move faster and faster. On the count of ten, you will be in Horizon.

I say:

One. Your pulse begins to quicken.
Two. Your friends rattle in the backseat.
Three. You’re moving faster and faster, the ocean roaring beside you.
Four. Your thoughts begin the wash away in a cloud of wind and dust.
Five. Coloured lights flurry in the distance.
Six. The lights shutter, everything lost in a thin blue haze.
Seven. You hurdle faster and faster into infinity.
Eight. The crowd thunders.
Nine. You cross into a larger, more colourful world.

On the count of ten, everything you have ever known fades away. You will be in Horizon.

I say… ten.
