HE IS COMING

Again, I felt the same pulse.

It thumped me on the chest harder than ever, as if a swarm of timpanists were clashing the drums and fighting between themselves. I still ignored it until the ordinary beat became a frenetic, perpetual rhythm.

The entire light is directed toward him as the piano strains continue to pound; as the violin string escorts.
