You’ve been here before. The water lapping the shore, the call of distant birds echoing over the lake, leaves whispering high above. You’ve heard it all. You’ve seen it all.

A thousand times, you made your way to where you saw Arthur last. Each time, yelling, crying, begging for an end to your despair, your loneliness, as your grip on reality slips a little more.

Arthur never comes.

Kilgharrah, deceitful beast, said Arthur would return. It’s just noise now, just you howling at the wind.

You’ve been here before, but Arthur is not waiting for you.

You won’t come again.
