In the Eastern section of the Vixen Mountain Range, there is a temple of Buddhist Monks
I am going there
A mellow cadence of footsteps echoes through the narrow ally that connects Berkenshire Street and Westward Lane in the corner-of-city of Chester, located somewhere, a very unclear somewhere, on the Bubonic Peninsula. Walking through this specific ally in Chester is thought of as an extremely unreasonable act because there are much faster routes. However, this ally was the least congested.
The Buddhist Temple
Eddie Jensen works at Jerry & Co. Appliances as a bookkeeper. As he walked, his eyes were glued to his feet, quite suddenly a surge of sadness rushed through him. He quickly realizing that it was the sadness of the Art Supplies Store owner who had recently lost his African Grey Parrot of 43 years. He looked up and sure enough it was Harold.
Good to see you.
How are you?
Abby Smith, Eddies cousin, was standing immediately inside the large, wooden double doors. He felt horrible. Just last week he had convinced Abby that creativity wasn’t a mythological concept, for the majority of Chester did not believe in creativity. He could still feel the lack of confidence and disappointment that flooded through her from a week ago. This was the tipping point where Eddie decided to do something about his overwhelming empathy.
Jerry & Co.
Eddie Jensen pursued his simple plan and reached the Buddhist temple where he was hoping to become more centered in himself. He spent three years at the temple and eventually made peace with his empathic nature and journeyed back down to Chester
On February 17th, 1995 Eddie Jensen walked out of his home down Berkenshire Street and along Buttonwood Avenue, bustling with pedestrians and traffic. He was relaxed and at ease with himself greeting each and every person he could, and successfully preventing anybody else’s emotions from entering his consciousness.
He swiftly strolled through the large, wooden double doors of Jerry and Co., smiled at Abby, and promptly walked to his desk and sat down.
