T1 "Follow Entity"
To say I wasn’t sure of its intentions would be gravely understating. Did it even have intentions, was it at all motivated by anything other than pure existence in just this very moment?
But I had little choice. I had to cross these plains, and this flamboyant creature seemed the only moving thing around that wasn’t outwardly hostile. At this stage of my journey I cared little for my sanity and yet less for my life, but the message had to be delivered at any cost.
Then I heard it inside my chest. There is no other way to describe it. The creature spoke through my heart, meaning without words pulsed inside my very core and resonance cascaded throughout every speck of my self - "follow entity".
I had no choice.
