Otto leaned against the wall, same as every day before. Behind sunglasses, his sightless eyes stared blankly into the silky blackness. Not a single sound graced his keen ears.

The hustle and bustle of tourists through the corridor put meaning in his life- not to mention food on his table. His daily interactions brought joy to his world- a symphony of sound, smell and touch. In a world of total darkness, the ever changing travelers were his light.

The streets were normally alive with foot traffic by late morning.

Not a soul passed by that day, or any day after.
