The electrodes feel cool against my temples. The mechanical hum soothes my frazzled nerves. A youthful technician attaches the remaining electrodes to William.
Tonight is our night.
William and I have been bonding since we were five. Now, fifteen years later, we know each other more intimately than most people know themselves. Our minds have learned to mingle together, to work in tandem.
Scientists bond to unlock the mysteries of the universe. Lovers bond to heighten the experience. We bond to make art, symphonies of light and sound, and on stage, we shall stun the world with our creative power.
