The Hidden

They keep warning us.

They tell us about the dangers of our new responsibilities, that people are always listening. Always. And they are watching, with piercing eyes. If we say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, it could end us. Just like that. The power of language…

Ironic really.

But the dangers don’t stop there. You see, once they know who we are, they try and find us. There’s nothing to stop them, and no way we could even try. In this modern age, our presence runs deep; traces of ourselves are scattered across digital streets. So what happens when they find it? The boundary is broken, and cannot be resealed. We would be compromised, our authority undermined, and so we are forced to withdraw, to disguise and to conceal.

We hide before the eyes of many, or else we are powerless.

    Hmmm, this sounds a bit like a prelude to a drama to me.

    I haven’t commented, but I have read this over and over trying to come up with something to say.

    My first impression was about how everyones lives are more or less on the internet.. easily traceable.

    But then again, it could be something different, and like Shadow says, it does sound like a prelude to a drama 😀

    It’s rather intriguing. Care to give more away?

      Indeed… it’s easy to forget just how easily people can find places we percieve as (semi) private these days. And when your career is based around a certain persona, or presence, it can easily be undermined by a single curious click.
