For a charity talent-show event at The Disney Store, Anthony was asked to write a short story that he would then read in front of a small audience. Inspired by a Guest in store, he decided to write a story about loss, nostalgia, and family love – all connected by a "simple" Mouse.
Is there a more frightening pain than the one we experience with love? When Anthony (coincidentally, the Author's namesake) finds a manuscript in the attic, he is forced to find the truth behind this question. He will unveil a dark secret, and a story long-forgotten of a young boy suffering from a form of depression.
They tell stories of a time in which men knew no love, constantly battling against each other for mere manifestations of power. Then, Lilith came; and mankind was never the same again.
Another short story inspired by a person, this time from a closed chapter of Anthony's life. It is a tale twisted in time, featuring a young man coming back to the mansion of his childhood, just after the end of the war.
This original short story was inspired by one of Anthony's dearest friends, a singer with heavenly voice. It talks about love, loneliness, and sacrifice.
While playing through the whole Witcher trilogy, Anthony was once inspired by a spectacular gameplay experience. He later wrote this short story as a tribute to the developers and to the original author of The Witcher.
