It was the dead of night, and the city outside the window was asleep. After a long day of endless work, the metropolis had finally settled down for respite. Everything would be temporarily put on hold until the next day. For now, it was time to rest.

Though, for the one individual on the inward side of the window, there was no time to rest. Things were only beginning. As long, agile fingers danced across the keyboard and an eerie glow of the computer screen lit the far end of the room, the dark figure continued to sculpt their own world…

Staring at the blank display before them, the writer was dumbfounded.

Then, slowly, letters appeared on the screen again. One by one, as if being inputted by a child not quite sure where each key was yet. Y… O… U… F… A… I… L… E… D…
