The clock ticking away: and then, the sounds of televisions being switched off. Silence fills the air. Everything just slumbers away into the darkness, resting from those animated dramas and evil plotting schemes, hysteric laughing and nonsense memes. All, you can hear, is the sound of the wind swaying the trees to and fro, frightening and yet quiet. The start of calling dogs, bats crickets rush into your mind as you sit alone in your room and you lie in bed. Thoughts rushing past you and wondering about you so fast that you can’t keep track.
