Days, weeks and even months have passed since our two have met for the first time. Nothing came from that brief encounter and neither has thought on the day for more than a second at a time. The Nothing going about his nothing while the Beautiful going about her plainness, simply pushing forward and allowing each day to blur together in a mass of one single nothing.
The rains have finally stopped, at least stopped pouring and flooding the streets. It is now summer and the birds are chirping. The sun is warm, the rain is minimal if it passes at all and it has been a great last week for the Nothing man at his job of Six X and Q.

Novella - Chapter ElevenChapter 11 A Change in Perspective
It has been many days since either Nothing or the woman have had much of anything pass. Both of them slowly move about their lives as each has reached that peek, that point of the mundane and repetitive.

Novella - Chapter SevenChapter 7 - A Letter from Narration
At this point it is possible to make assumptions about the characters in our story. It is possible to see beyond the veil that is written and piece together the pieces that have been tossed about the ground. The puzzle seems to be slowly putting itself into place but then an odd piece pulls itself to light and we can not make heads or tails of it. The color of this piece does not fit with the picture on the box, but I tell you this small piece does not come from a different puzzle.
That small piece will have you wondering and wondering, while yet all the other pieces slowly fit themselves together and the picture is slowly revealed. However you will also notice that the image on the box is not exactly the puzzle you are piecing together. Something is not quite right, yet you are unsure what it is. As time passes you now think you know exactly where that odd piece from before was meant to go, yet there is something wrong again. The
