Author's Notes:
A sort-of parallel to A Whisper, I.

They whispered, sometimes. His past selves came out from the shadowy corners of his mind, whispering things. Saying, ‘she isn’t worth it’, and, ‘you have to stop now’. They all said it, all except for number nine–and he knew why. Nine had been just as smitten as he was now. It was just that nine had been better at hiding it.

He didn’t pay attention to them. They didn’t whisper ‘We told you so,’ as he stood, ear pressed against a white wall, listening for someone who wasn’t there. But they didn’t need to say anything. He knew already.
