Hidden in plain sight, a tower, one forgotten and ignored. A place where many have come to die, a place plagued by death and pain. Tis a tower that links with the tale of a young man who jumped into the devil’s mouth. There, a task was assigned, a task to help whoever he desired, a task to always be bound by said tower; this was the job of the Seeker, the one who sought after the dark-side of humanity. The Seeker is a collection of short-stories about different individuals who've decided to take the ultimate step. The previous story [Virtuoso] has been replaced by this one instead. I decided to go back to my roots of writing dark-stories. Disclaimer: In no way do I have a deep knowledge on how psychology works. The words in this story don't hold any credit - It's a work of art; nothing more and nothing less.

Cold and hollow. They said I shouldn’t go near him. Still, there was this aching pull to Julian Blackwell that I couldn’t escape. A nostalgic pull as if we’d been here before.

Two years later, Bluejay- the middle child of a family with one absent father and 3 brothers from separate relationships, is a boy not so easily coerced. He doesn't know if its the constant absence of their father or the backstabbing remarks of his "friends" that fuels his drive to find Taro, but he knows he must.

Bluejay's older brother, Gerdie, is all that he has, but as Blue's mind drifts farther and farther away from reality, Gerdie becomes afraid he might lose him altogether. Taro isn't the only child that the forest of Sylvan Pines has taken. And there must be a reason why their father can't be near Blue without remembering the reason he works abroad. Over time Blue realizes something is wrong with him, but he wonders if wrong is the right word. Once the few things that hold Blue's interests are gone, he resorts to watching people.

Gerdie tries to help him before he's too far to reach. He puts things that he remembers together and the story begins to fall into place. Either it's his innocent little brother, or something inside of him.
