Cathedral of the Crucifix
The Cathedral of the Crucifix occupied a large corner of a city block, a Gothic monument of old swallowed up in a modern world. Its weathered stone walls and twin steeples stood immoveable but worn down by time. Moss crept up its sides, almost reaching a stained-glass window on one side. A thin strip of garden between the cathedral and the sidewalk had grown into a thick tangle of weeds, whose green tendrils reached through the wrought iron fence surrounding the building. Buttresses and spires lining the cathedral were cracked and stained. Graffiti was scrawled across one of the walls. The windows were all dark, one boarded up. A clock above the recessed entranceway was frozen in time at 6:03.
