Awakening (Absence of Song I)
“Though music is forbidden and could get me in big trouble with the Ministry, I nevertheless often find myself singing softly in spite of the danger. Little do I know just how much hot water my strange compulsion to sing will actually land me in. What is happening in the world around me?
How is it happening? How does the stranger Noah fit into things? And most importantly… why me? I’m no more special than the next person. So many questions and so many dangers. All I can do is trust that whatever is happening, it is good. I can see that it’s good, and I refuse to let anyone convince me otherwise.”
