I totally zone out as Alex walks off. What happens after that...? I dunno, to be honest. I guess the ambulance arrives and takes the guy away, because the next thing I know, I'm walking down the road Alex went down, looking around for him, swatting away midges and a couple of moths as I walk, suppressing a yawn.
Pausing to light a cigarette, I look up and see a silhouette, the hair on the back of my neck prickling.
The silhouette laughs.
