The old man is dying. What more can I say? The world is…Killing him, I think. Marie is trying very hard to fix what's wrong with him, and so far it seems to be working. The world has always provided for us when we needed it, and even now in this state it's still doing so. Maybe the world perceives the old man as an intruder or detriment to our safety?
Perhaps if the world sees us trying to help the man, it'll leave him alone? Marie says he might just be dying, she somehow spun it as a way to blame our nonexistent parents. But she is trying really hard to save him, and recently the world has been slowly getting better! Less glitchy and grey, we'll just have to hope it gets completely better soon, so I can see my garden!
