What would you do if time was alive, and wanted you dead? That’s not a joke, really. Time has its own shape, own entity, called Keepers. They hunt us for fun it feels like, strip us of the time we have left and turn us into them. All of us are vulnerable to an attack. No way to fight them really, till Rigby came along by accident. He was a Watchmaker, and a random time traveler, who could bring about a Keeper’s demise with a blade or a ‘spell’ as he called them, he taught a few how to do this, but not enough, people scattered, lands fell to Keepers, and people lived in fear for ages. Then…it all stopped, that endless ticking stopped and Keeper’s vanished. People were confused, worried, Keepers were almost a natural cycle of the world and now they were gone, people wanted answers
Not me though, I don’t care about these Keepers, I say to heck with them, as long as I can stay with my friends on our little corner of the world I’m fine with that. Keepers vanished long before I was even born so what do I care? No one ever found any answers, so Keepers went into the pages of history along with the fabled Watchmaker. I’m just glad I never have to deal with that annoying sound. But….There’s a fear I’ll always have…for things to change again…I just never want to hear that sound…The fabled sound of the Keepers.
