“No man can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be true.” -Nathaniel Hawthorne
Only my first day to try existing, and already it wasn’t going well. My face constantly prickled, out in full view. I kept putting my hand up to adjust a slipped eyebrow, or a chin-piece peeling loose, it was automatic. Air on my face, on all parts of my face? That meant something had gone wrong with my disguise. Only now I was the disguise- the face no one in Cryssigens had ever seen was on display. Feldspar the infamous stealthic, just sauntering down The Boards in the city’s poorer quarter, taking in the air and daring any soul here to recognize me.
