The sun rises on a new dawn. Yet few of us realise the debt we owe to those responsible for this. To those who dwell among us, anonymous, seemingly ordinary, whom destiny brought together to repair, to heal, to save us from ourselves.
And they're still out there, among us in the shadows, in the light. We pass them on the street without a glance, never suspecting, never knowing. Do they even know yet? That they are bound together for a common purpose? A glaring reality... to be extraordinary. And when destiny does anoint them...
...how do they hide from it? How long can they dwell in the shadows before wither date or their own flawed humanity draws them into the light, again? And how will they know what awaits them when it finally does?
