Kappa is scared
His heart beats too fast
His nerves are shot and he hasn't slept since...1924?
He can't remember.
Time seems to have gone crazy, spinning in loops until he doesn't know if it is day or night.
Will you help him?
Is he safe here? Can he stay...just for a bit?
And when you find out what he is running from will you forgive him?
