Deconstructed by Sophie Boyce

1. Once upon a time. In the beginning. A very long time ago. Before time even began. When your grandfather’s grandfather’s grandfather was but a thought in his father’s loins.

2. There was a king. There was peace. So long ago it is now forgotten. There was a clock. The land was ruled by noble men.

3. Locked in a castle. War was yet to be imagined. There was harmony between all things. The hands of the clock counted not minutes or hours or seconds but souls. Not noblemen.

4. Where nothing could be seen or understood. The hearts of men were yet to be corrupted. But harmony does not last in a world of men. And there were already too many souls. Who were not noble.
