Casting Shadows Switch to Fall — Dreams Decay by Course Toys
Days as long as months, the noop treasures the time with his favorite new companion. The perfect playmate, nism, gives glee to the noop with his slithering sucker hugs. His elated mood, always clear in his colourful aura. Countless hours of innocent fun ends with them dipping into the shade of a calm oasis, as the noop glides his paw! kite in the soft afternoon breeze.
Before long, their welcoming surroundings fade to illusion. All the life that exists between them becomes withered and gnarled. Every drop of moisture escapes into the shuddering air. From above, everything begins to tumble into an orchestrated downward spiral. The disoriented noop and nism scramble and grasp for anything to hold on to, as the ground beneath them begins to disintegrate.
Each of them manages to cling to a tiny flake of earth, before being hurled around a cycle of colliding matter. Draining into a dead gray, nism’s once supple limbs become stiff and dry. Paralyzed, he longs to be protected by a firm embrace. The noop fends for himself, cowering away from from the onslaught of whirling fragments that attack him from every angle. They catch sight of each other for an instant, but then continue to fall deep into the abyss.
