The Policeman saw a trail of insects, a very long one indeed. This wasnt just the normal trail of ants rushing towards a bit of discarded food, and it didnt just contain ants either.

Extracts from this document...


The Same Old Blues [The Solitary Policeman] Trying to doze off, the policeman lost his will to do so when he saw something that wasn't normal, even on a midnight shift. He had seen drug dealers, thieves, prison escapees, even a large number of intoxicated celebrities, among other things. But this, this was something that would seem out of place unless it was in a Harry Potter book, or another equally fantastic affair. The Policeman saw a trail of insects, a very long one indeed.

And couldn't it choose a better time to get on Syd's nerves than now? Beep-beep-beep Almost instinctively, Syd reached for his watch and hit it hard, as if it were the monster that was assaulting him. At least he wasn't robbed of the ability to make reasonably good judgments instinctively. It was four minutes past the end of his shift. 7.04am in the morning. Syd rubbed his eyes and looked around. Another long day awaited him. The day had begun for many a person, and the Victoria Coach Station had started being busy again. He picked up his book, 'Awakening to the Dream: the Gift of Lucid Living' by Leo Hartong and headed back home. Apparently he still required much practice before he acquired that gift. ?? ?? ?? ??
