My feet lead me down a path, my mind not fully aware of where I am. The air is cool, kissing my face in icy tingles. The floor beneath me seems to stretch on forever, tiny rocks kicking up at my trainers, scuffing dirt onto their white surface. I cringe in disappointment at the sight of the new leather, caked in orangey dust. My eyes travel upwards, spying the surroundings that close in all around me. Claustrophobia etches through my bloodstream, nerves sparking at the trees wrapping me in an overly tight blanket of branches and leaves. The sun has sunk, letting the moon take the spotlight.
