I set out on a trip all by myself.
I didn’t have a map or a ticket I didn’t know where I was going.
But I went alone.
And I was alone.
For a very long time.
Towards the end of the trip I heard someone walking towards me-
and then I heard someone breathing
just around the corner from where I was walking
And then I stopped.
” Someone there? “
No one answered.
” Hey! Is someone there? ” I called out just a little louder.
The breathing stopped and the footsteps came towards me from around the corner and I closed my eyes tight and put one foot in front of the other and then I flew towards the breathing and the footsteps and the voices that cried out:
” What the hell was that? ” came the voice from behind me and then below me as I took to the darkness above ” What the Hell was that! “
