There is a fire that never goes out

 

There is a fire that never goes out. You warm your hands over it for a few years and learn the names of the statues in the academy. One by one the books disappear from the library until it’s just an empty room, the one you work in. The wheels of night begin to spin. The only light is memory. There is a fire that never goes out.
