Vanilla and MustThe scent of vanilla and must was overpowering. Celia rather enjoyed it, but her companion couldn't stand it. He'd never said why the scent bothered him so much, but she knew. He missed home.
The train wheezed its way around a corner. A crate fell from the stack behind Sylvester. He barely caught the box, and was all too eager to put it back where it had come from. "I hate trains." The man slumped back against the crates with the scornful look he seemed to always have.
Celia rolled her eyes at him and managed a smile. She was determined not to be in the same mood as he was. "Don't be such a grump." She turned away to look out a small window. The countryside flew past in a blur. If she didn't let her eyes focus all the way, she could almost miss the destruction that wracked the land.

May I have a face?"May I have a face?" asks a shadow in my mind. Now, it is nothing more than an outline, but one day, it longs to be real. And so, a face it is given. Sculpted carefully from memories and photographs, its image is formed. It looks real now, but it is empty. There is nothing inside. It has no more than this voice of schizophrenia that I have given a face to.
A face isn't enough. It wants more. It wants to feel. "The way you can, with your emotions," it reminds me. And so, I lend to it my emotions just as it wanted. It knows it is cold outside, the way the wind whips through my hair, it can feel it too.
It can feel its own emptiness. "There is nothing inside." I try to reassure it, but it is no use. "I remember nothing more than being empty. I am a shadow of your existence." I share a piece of my memory with it. I let it take a memory, to mold it, to make it its own. It takes a few more, and I craft new memories, things of its own.
"I am alone." Slowly, I share with it those I have known.
