“But he couldn’t risk taking the helmet off. It was the only thing saving him from the firing squad. He was no longer able to keep his thoughts silent. No longer able to squash his misgivings about what he had done.”
T.C. Avey

“Quote from “Unexpected Tales from the Ends of the Earth”:

“The only one everlasting love is the unrealized one. The love to this thing that you’d never had. Behind it is hidden the love to your own ego and feelings".”
Alexandar Tomov, Unexpected Tales from the Ends of the Earth
