The quiet rock strode about, not saying anything, a black hole that drained all harmony from the world. Granite hated it. Obsidian despised it. Marble detested it. All the great citizens of the world feared the strange quiet rock who had no name, and refused to speak, or couldn't speak. That was most horrifying. To speak was to harmonize, to harmonize was to connect, to connect was to be alive. Those who could not speak could not live. And yet the quiet rock moved with a devilish vitality.
