Light came from the sphere – surrounding him – showing him what he needed to see.
Scenes so real, it’s as if he was there.
Displayed before him was Solum in all its beauty and in all its horrors. He saw millions upon millions of its inhabitants. He joined them in their triumphs and groaned with them in their agonies.
He memorized every face, every name.
Lost among them was his beloved Serena. Their agony was hers and her agony was his. She was one among seven billion. Stranger in a realm she didn’t belong to. Living one life after another in Solum until he could finally get to her in the last remaining realm of mortals.
A realm known to its inhabitants as Earth.
