For short time, he was happy. He could no longer see the pain in people's faces, or the death all around him.
But he could hear them.
So, he took the same needle, and burst his ear drums.
Again, he was happy. He didn't hear crying, screaming, or anything bad.
But the destruction of his sight and hearing had enhanced his nose. He could smell it all: fear, pain, love, hate.
So he took a match and burned his nose receptors.
Now, Toby thought he would be happy because he couldn't see, hear, or smell the horrors of the world.
But, in the end, he also couldn't see the good things in the world.&
