Once upon a time there was a little girl who had the whole world at her fingertips. All was bright and merry, brimming with... everything. But as time went on and she and the world grew older, the world began to slip away.
After awhile it seemed that there was no world left for her to reach.
All grew dim. At last, all turned to empty darkness.
She gathered all her courage then, and every last ounce of strength. In the darkness, she made a new world.
And suddenly she was flame.
