She appears to be a quiet, reserved, and harmless young girl with brown hair and insanely big eyes. Why is she deep inside a dark tunnel all alone? What is that loud, sucking, slurping and swooshing noise?
No one is really sure exactly how many heads suddenly sprout from her skin. There are too many. On that point, everyone agrees. The fact that each head looks off in a different direction with those huge eyes is somewhat disconcerting. Somehow, the term, “Creepy”, seems to be an understatement.

What if everyone else was able to manipulate time and you just couldn’t remember the old timelines? Look closely at the next person you see. Are they acting as if they are innocent? Will they deny it if you confront them? What other secrets are they hiding? If you say too much about it, will they go back and alter your timeline again? Perhaps, they already have…
