The Guardian

Somewhere far beyond the boundaries of human knowledge exists the guardian. It is a force so controlled from within itself it can never be damaged. It has a power so strong it can never be captured. With it, it carries a passion so deep that you’ll never find the bottom. And for a small few it would move the world, and for one it did.

Like a shadow it followed close behind, protecting. It guided through times when spirits were broken and all that remained was an aging body that was alone and weak. Like no other it forgave, trusted, and loved. However, it couldn’t be yet and it remained unknown. It was still watching at death and a small part of them merged together.
