The moment of realisation; the moment the sun vanished from the world and was replaced by a black rock that cast darkness everywhere. The sound of the birds singing faded and then there was silence followed by a piercing scream that came from the depths of the traumatised mind. The heart started beating in a strange rhythm, each beat becoming more painful than the last. Darkness started seeping into the visual field and the world turned into a terrifying blur.

There was an explosion within the brain that disorientated the millions of nerve impulses travelling along axons and caused a sudden imbalance in neurotransmitters. Disintegration; the world fell apart into jigsaw pieces that refused to fit into one another. Another explosion in the brain caused agonising psychological pain that morphed into unbearable physiological pain. The ghosts of a lifetime worth of dreams and hopes left the mind and floated upwards towards the intensifying darkness. The body went into adrenaline overdrive, fight or flight turning into panic, which then turned into horror and loss of control over the mind. Fear and loss of control travelled through every blood vessel in the body, a strange numbing sensation filled the mind and the soul itself cowered into the smallest corner of the body curling itself into a ball.
