Prologue

Shido walked along in the fog. There were no buildings or trees, just him and the fog. After a little while he saw a figure, small and dark. "Who's there"
"Hello, Mr. Shido"
He stopped dead in his tracks. "Riho"
"Don't look so surprised. I have gifts as well"
"How did you get here"
"Dreamwalking. It's a skill that is seen exclusively in females." She sighed. "It's been almost a year and you've changed so little"
"Neither have you. What's happened"
"I don't have to answer you"
Shido jerked back. "You're fading"
"What?" Riho looked down at herself, then regained her composure. "No one's perfect. I will be watching"
"Wait!"
