CHAPTER FIVE

THE MAN COULD HEAR THE CACOPHONY ABOVE THE SOUND OF THE CHAMBER MUSIC.

He stood on unsteady feet and made his way slowly to the window.

He could sense the disturbance in the animal kingdom.   He could feel its origin began several floors below him in the park.

As he reached out to touch the glass in front of him… it stopped.   The chamber music, the animals and birds, the confused agony of hundreds of animals suddenly went stone cold silent.

Without needing to race to the street below, the old man knew one of his children – his creations – died this night.

He also knew that in the only way that mattered, her death was his fault.
