Eulba, a physicist and mathematician exploring modern theories on the universe, is equally immersed in the myths of the Mayan culture. She enjoys a unique romantic relationship with her boyfriend, Beloved. They are entangled in a relationship imbued with bliss, love, math, myth, and science, which remarkably, continues even after his ill-fated death. Through a series of life altering events, Eulba shuttles between myth and science, accepting the myths of the Maya, and finally entering the myth itself through an act of self-sacrifice at the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar.

Darkness sinking fast, and with each stroke, silently rushing to cover the campus buildings, the lonesome trees, even engulfing the circling showering falling leaves.
