There is another clock across town. It is similar to the re-sale shop clock in height and it has a similar mechanism. The face is smaller and the cabinet is made largely of glass. It is all shiny and bright, and unlike the first clock this one is fully functional. It bangs out chimes every hour and marks the quarter hour with other chimes. It is rooted deeply in a house there, clock veins running through the floor and walls. It has clock hands reaching out, touching. This, however, is the beginning of a story rather than the end of it.
