While searching for the next great rap artist, his next favourite musician, a new great single, Courtland found himself dozing amidst an ever growing pile of disappointment.
The search was taxing and the results unyielding as waking sleep began to creep into his consciousness. Drifting slowly downwards into a state between sleep and awake, Courtland found himself lost and unsure. A figure in the shadows smiled and gestured to a nearby clearing where a red sign flashed: HYPERBOLE
In neon on and off, directing him to a door beneath the sign labelled “Day Dreams”
Gasping, he reached out a hand and drew open the door and the red light enveloped him, pulling him down into the dimension of his own waking sleep to uncover what lies within himself.
Travelling downwards and upwards all at once, encompassed by the essence of his inner self, Courtland could see the duality of his real life and the life he had yet to realize. seeing within himself a beautiful beast capable of carrying him to the top of the highest peak and defending him from the fiercest foes.
Howling, he and the beast shared a heart and mind as they together sensed the resistance they were going to meet throughout the land. A kinship with all beasts was forged from this and they heeded a warning to all those opposing this new presence: We’re coming for you.
