Holder of the Past, Present, and Future


In any city, in any country, go to any mental institution or halfway house you can get yourself to. When you reach the front desk, ask with no hesitation to visit someone who calls himself "The Holder of the Past, Present, and Future." The attendant will look up at you with familiarity, although you've never seen her face in your life. She will lead you out of the building, where you will both walk for what seems like hours, but will actually only be a few minutes.

Eventually, she will lead you to the vacation home from your childhood. Your brain will tell you that this isn't possible, for that house was in a different state, but your body will bring you to the door. The attendant will hand you a key, but don't use it. If you do, you will be trapped in the past for eternity. Instead, close your eyes. When you hear the water running, it is safe to open them.

You will be in the kitchen, standing over the sink. It will be empty except for the water, which will be overflowing. Silently watch the water as it spills onto the floor. Do not stop it from running. Do not move. Do not make a noise. In the blink of an eye, the water will turn a dark red. The smell of blood will fill the air, and a throat will clear behind you. Turn around. It will be an elderly man, who you will instantly know as Thanos Gregory, the first person to set foot in the house you stand in. He will push his reading glasses up the bridge of his nose, and at that exact moment you must utter the words, "When will they come?"

If you say the words even a second too late, you will drown in the rising pool of blood. However, if you manage to say them correctly, the man will launch into his horridly detailed life story. Most Seekers will be driven insane by the gory details. But if you survive, the man's figure will flicker in and out of existence until it disappears. The bloody flood will disappear with it, and the man's reading glasses will fall to the ground.

Those glasses are Object 1/2. You will be needing them in the future.
