I stand in the middle of the chaos. No wait, make that above the chaos, looking down from my hoverboard.
disjointed words and conversations travel through the air, hitting my ears in an assaulting wave.
suddenly, through my eyes, all is calm. I feel a peace inside. My focus shifts and I feel something behind me. Slowly I turn around, savoring the moment. Whatever is behind me... I know it exceeds everything I hope for, beyond my wildest dreams. The sounds around me fade away, as if my ears became tuned to a different station.
absolute silence reigns as I complete the turn.
there stands the Scarlet Man, cape billowing softly. I drop to my knees and face in awe-struck wonder. Then, I look up.
a finite language cannot express the words he spoke.
then, turning, he jumps off the end of the hoverboard and disappears.
sinking down, I sigh. Ambient noise returns once more to command attention.
