There was a narrator who told the story of a lost child...
Missing from it's family, desperate to return home, but not until it could solve the riddle it had been given. How to unlock the puzzle and return home, so the child could go back to what was normal.
But deep in it's heart the child knew that normal would never come back. It was older, wiser, more experienced..."
I wonder if that was the starting point of a story where would the writers take it? I can imagine where I would take it as the Audiobook narrator.
I have such appreciation for what writers do. The care they use to craft their stories and characters.
