Staring across the flooded valley at the empty Tea House, the Isochronus Stag inhaled deeply as the continual assault of raindrops drenched his dense grey coat. The efforts of the Isochrons to control the natural world had taken its toll.
The Stag began to walk slowly towards the water’s edge and as he placed his front foot near the surface of the water, the water directly underneath his hooves was frozen solid, creating a glistening crystalline pathway as he walked towards the Tea House. Standing next it, the Stag looked up towards the sky as the rain started to turn into snow.
Far, far away, a bright flash lit up the sky.
