"A thousand going once. Any other takers?" asked the woman, raising an eyebrow at the low price. Strangely, no one else bid. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Even the thunder seemed to stop, and only lightning made a single sound. Hmph... first time in a long while this has happened... "The cat girl goes to the man over there. Harlo, go and give him the chain." Harlo tugged on the long silvery chain, and the girl, not looking up at all and hiding her strange crimson and green eyes that were somewhat blurred over.
Harlo, though being dumb, knew better than to simply hand the chain off so soon. "Name?" he asked, his voice slurred as though permanently drunk. However, his eyes were sharper than a drunkard's glazed ones.
High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life. Fight fear for the selfish pain;
It was worth it every time. Hold still right before we crash 'cause we both know how this ends.
A clock ticks 'til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again,
'Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn't need. Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don't know why!
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy? If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?
