Monday Mixer Entry: Canyon Song


Canyon Song”



Ian poised at the bottom of the chasm, soulful notes pouring forth from his ocarina. He prayed Charity would hear and understand, that the music might stem her regressive behavior.

Ian heard the snarls and sighed. “Tomorrow’s another day.”

Charity’s decaying mind sought out the source of the music with the intention of ending it.
