Author’s Note: This was an original first paragraph to The Eternals, though at the time the books were titled Decadent Gothic. I didn’t use it as I felt it made Jean appear lost, and being lost was something he had to grow into.
Life was an unravelling mystery by which I mean I unravelled. Unravelling was a talent not all possessed, but I’d perfected. Where some had beginnings, middles and ends, I had nondescript moments of unidentifiable hints. One day, I vowed to find a start and trace it to a conclusion. Today was not this day.
Thank you for reading
