The sound came faintly as first, a symphony of noise that stirred the ears and livened the heart, before gradually growing louder in it’s tumultuous cacophony. I tried to make out from which direction it came, but the howling wind grabbed on to each note tenaciously and flung them haphazardly into the bleakness of the moors…bastard.
It was the bright lights which blazoned across the stark grey of the moorland, that finally alerted me to it’s location. It was directly in front of me but a little to the left, though not too much to the left that it veered off center. Maybe it was just slightly to the right, perhaps a couple of inches, which would still make it in front of me, but not squarely in front of me, in which case, I was wrong about it being directly in front of me.
What could it be? I felt compelled to investigate further. Willing my feet forwards, I walked on at a fast yet steady pace. But soon my curiosity became overtaken by a sense of heightened excitement and I found myself running towards the hubbub, with the wind at my back, hastening me on my way with it’s gusts of encouragement.
