At other times, she had always felt it began with other people surrounding her. She felt a bittersweet seed in her stomach, lonely amoung the crowd. More of a cognition than an emotion, that she existed perpetually alone in herself unable to ever truly be more than just one. It seemed a bit of a celestial ideal, one tiny star in the galaxy beginning. Rarely had Lyn ever felt any other kind of real lonliness, especially not when she was alone.

"Et tu, kitt-ehs?" She smirked at her insipid joke.
They yawned and stretched back into sleep. Lyn settled back and stared again at the television's flickering theatre.
