The Dark

"God, I love summer."
He didn't really say this out loud, but he was thinking it so hard, he might as well have. After all, the sun was shining on his face, and he was shining right back. Life was good. And so it would be for the next 15 seconds. He crossed the street, smiling at the car that had stopped for him. 13. Johnny Clash blared at him through his earphones, and he hummed along with it, off key and not giving a damn. 10. He crossed a friend of his, looking equally cheery. They nodded, grinning. He went around a corner. 7. He looked up into the sky, closed his eyes, and smiled. He stood there for a while.
He didn't realize.
No-one did, of course.
Not this kind of thing.
