second in a series,
“When you lie in bed , close your eyes,
for soon they come from darkened skies,
their mouths are locked, their secrets owned
stealing children from bed and home
So spy them not, don’t eye their faces
lest they take you from your sweet warm places.”
Merely a nursery rhyme (albeit “Grimm”)to keep children sleeping.
But the legend of the “Hush” creatures goes beyond the tooth fairy. This new found artifact has scholars and scientists debating the origin of the legend with theories ranging from “Ancient Atlantean Guardsmen recovering their scattered descendants” to “Otherworldly beings forced to hide their visage as their true angelic appearance would drive any human mad with delight”.
All above from a story I am putting together.
All masks will belong to a different character.
All will look broken and worn, but on closer inspection, one will be able to see there was a beauty and craftsmanship to the original. Only now the beauty is lost to the ages, as is the secret origins of these quiet beings that live a secret life in and among us.
