People fall out of the world sometimes, but they always leave traces, little things you can’t quite account for.. Nothing is ever forgotten, not completely, and if something can be remembered, it can come back.
Stories you read when you’re the right age never quite leave you. You may forget who wrote them or what the story was called. Sometimes you’ll forget precisely what happened, but if a story touches you it will stay with you, haunting the places in your mind that you rarely ever visit.
