Slight Sample

Patricio’s ledger was full, illegible and scribbled. He was only ever asked about the number. Nothing else. Nothing else mattered. Nothing else was interesting. He passed his time combing over the numbers. Never trying to make sense. There was no sense. There wasn’t even a war. Or was there? Patricio had lost time… and time split…
