Barely paying attention to the buildings plugged into the ground, hardly noticing the traffic clogging the street, my mind was blank to the world, but not for the first time. This city sucks the smiles from the soul.
Taking a break from the mundane, I glanced up at a small patch of black sky between the jagged mountainous rooftops, and there it burned! Its long tail stretched across the darkness. The fireball I've so sorely missed.
"Did you see that?!" I'd shouted excitedly to the others. It couldn't be helped, it was just that thrilling.
I've composed myself now. Yeah, the family thought I was a little too ecstatic, a bit odd... ...but scarcely do they understand. The sky brings a peace I can not find in these concrete walls.
