Quietness that is unexpected or sudden. Especially when the audience doesn't understand. A time when you'd expect only to hear crickets, due to the silence. A slow lonely time
You could hear a pin drop.

A beautiful magical and mysterious boy who is sweet and gentle and always does the right thing, but if you cross him he will put a wicked curse on you. He is one of the few men in the world that truly respects women and truly deserves to be respected by all women. A true King of Zion. He is a keeper of ancients secrets and a modern day angel/ delivery boy of Truth and Love. He often reminds people of Peter Pan and is usually surrounded by lost boys, tinkerbells, wendy's and tigerlilys. He Always tells the truth and he gives the best advice of anyone on earth. He has inhumanly good vision, fights like a ninja and eats mostly sugar.
If Cricket said that its a bad idea then lets listen to him, you remember what happened last time we didn't...
