Whatever happened, happened quickly and without warning. It left the world filled with things that were once human that now feed on anything that makes the slightest noise.
When he can, Bill listens to an old Walkman he found, with its single cassette tape, ‘The Shaggs, Philosophy of the World.’ It is not his favorite kind of music, but it does the job of whiling away the long, lonely hours.
Sadly, he dropped it, and the noise it made nearly got him killed. Only by running did he save this life.
Bill learned his lesson and now lives in silence.
