In the eve of summer, a little girl took a walk.  The sky was alight with a strange cloud, and she came upon a talisman, who showed her where the darkness was, and how to eat it. The road became dark and confusing. There was no one around, no voices or chittering, and in the silence there was an eerie peace.  The darkness in her belly beckoned her forward, and she arrived at a place to rest.  She dreamed of amorphous beings with no faces, alarming and terrible, for their masks were heartbreaking. They told her to continue on the road. She met other children on her travels, and collected their souls in a little basket.  When she reached the river, brown with the lives of many, she released all of the darkness and all of the souls, to become stars.
