A man recalls the time he met a spiritual being in an erry netherworld.
note - have many doubts about it, the intro has part of it held back for the ending, Its not on top of my priority list but I'll bump it up if ppl like it.
I saw him on the corner of a long and dark street, it felt like I had walked for hours between a never ending set of tall building with invisible windows. I couldn't see a star in the sky, yet everything was basked in a blue gray light that seemed to come from nowhere...  The lack of sound was more creepy than it was reassuring and the smell of dampness, only added to the eery gloom that hung around, Silent, amongst the flickering dust particles that caught the stale light.
