Something wasn’t right. The feeling gestated in the pit of my stomach, seeking form, yet defying description.
Sitting in Sibyl’s vacant apartment did little to settle me. On the coffee table sat a mason jar filled with brightly colored and folded slips of paper. Countless time I had tried to open it, to no avail.
The door slammed, and I jumped as Sibyl appeared. She easily opened the jar and deposited two slips of folded paper before replacing the lid.
“Have you figured it out?” she asked.
The truth hit me.
“You record the words of the gods.”
Keep on writing.
