Standing on a high moor, the rain engulfs you; the music seems to ring in your ears. Water drips off your face, down the back of your neck. The lights buzz, almost imperceptibly, a faint noise sounds somewhere high to your right. A bead of sweat rolls down over the forehead, caught by the eyebrow. It sits there, heavy and unmoving. No figure appears over the horizon. What has the wait been for?
