The lighthouse Keeper’s Dreams can be a life…

the lighthouse Keeper Dreams can be a Some of them can be easily integrated into a chain of memories as an absolutely true fact And it happens that itself is like , where the caravan events, it is in the impenetrable fog of Faces, snippets of conversations and other circumstances of reality to the evening, losing the expressiveness And you wonder: “was it all really?” They delight or sadden, but will never go unnoticed This idea has long matured in my head However, what was still possible to think of a person in such distress it’s been a year after moving or so a Sense of time dulled It quietly adjust to the situation and mood I could endlessly watch the snowfall outside the window; not stopping to watch as the big fluffy snowflakes slowly descend from the sky on a black loop highways If was able to look away all this was spinning the Lush snow dissolved, the Cold gave way to warmth And the began to sink in the greenery of the Summer sun gilded the roofs of high-rise buildings Peach sky breathed freshness Apparent inconsistencies in the chronology was surprised at first, had to admit that I just don’t notice the world around you that happens if you are completely immersed in the solution of urgent problems and routine dwell days, turning the past into the future impeccable clone and today everything was supposed to go on nakatannomu scenario: awakening, a call home, search of , the endless queue for benefits and an evening I will remember However in a simple manner interfered with something else in the Morning came to my room a faint light scarcely dispelled the twilight, but it was enough to open my eyes, to understand themselves and jerk to get out of bed the phone Rang the Connection left much to be desired, but mother could not do without these conversations It long and in detail told, what he did yesterday, asked to return, and without waiting for a response, hung up However, as usual a Light Breakfast I combined with a Fresh view jobs newsletter was waiting for me on one of the email addresses So for a laptop it took another few moments of Course, this ritual had nothing to do with this competition Though and calmed his nerves When it came time to go to the labour exchange, my attention was drawn to a red envelope without a signature the Strange thing is, I don’t remember when they took it out of the mailbox, I quickly opened the envelope and Inside there was three times the folded piece of paper and some money In the letter had no logo, no signatures – only a couple of lines of text and the mobile number I was invited to In one Northern town needed a lighthouse a long Way, and you need to buy a ticket For this purpose and put the money the Employer emphasized his trust: “You may spend the money as they like, and refuse the offers Just keep in mind that in one day will be able to get a lot more” brand New banknotes laid on the table next to the envelope They would be enough for a ticket home and back Arrogant thought raised a smile and I imagined how great it would be to go back and forget all the hell of stagnation And on the other hand, in this kind of temptation there was no sense on top of that, a strange feeling kept from rash action – Hello? – the number took up the challenge, but didn’t answer – Hello? Can you hear me? Hello – welcome to the automatic system, the Operator left a message for you Listen to it – the metal voice with a smooth tone read the introduction and continued after the tone – If you agree Go today there is little time to get the Tickets booked in Your name They need to redeem in the cashier of the Central station, On arrival You will be met by our agent and explain the duties of Thank you In one moment it seemed to me that is something very important impatient of delay Is reasonable doubt and evaluation of the heard, I started packing And an hour later a pretty girl at the cashier gave me the ticket of the People on the platform are virtually no Train was preparing for departure At the entrance to the train tickets checked by the conductor, as two drops of water similar to a cashier So, at least, it seemed Possible that the uniform deprives of individuality? Think about it is not happened, after a short announcement the train started In the empty compartment I was on my own Speed and the same type of rocked I fell asleep And when I woke up, I saw that it was and the moon is full Dark blue canvas of the sky hung over the black profile wheelset forests Knock set the pace to the empty thoughts of a Leisurely meditation could last forever, but someone knocked on the door, Your station will soon Wake up! the voice belonged to the conductor, although intonation was like a answering machine on the phone employer I Packed up and left to the platform the Train silently stood before the deserted platform, a Woman opened the door and briefly said goodbye remained immovable Every step on the concrete platform was given to the echoing In the Windows of cars was dominated by impenetrable , the Only light source nearby served as the lone lantern in the distance, the house the signal-man There on the bench sat a middle-aged man Contrary to expectation, he cheerfully greeted me and handed over the second red envelope – You must be the new lighthouse Keeper? – Yes, … I can take You near Here – the Sea is so close? in the air he heard the usual marine notes, smelling of damp, dense underbrush and mold – Sea? No there is no sea But there is a lighthouse And we have long needed a caretaker – Okay… this sounds weird but what’s the difference if you paid for it – of Course, pay the man winced as if we had heard something unpleasant – not time to waste we Need to hurry to get late at night And the lighthouse is disabled it would not have a trouble Muddled dialogue did not develop In the car we haven’t talked in Muffled Parcival the engine is broadcast radio broadcast transmitted weather reports and announced the night music program To my chagrin, I didn’t know a single song or group of represented by leading Lights had pulled out a small section of the road, turning the night into a solid tunnel leading to nowhere And the sound receiver was the only thread linking the events with the reality of the Machine is gradually turned to the right and left on the primer knocked out in a rut after Another dozen yards the car stopped – Here are the Keys and the instructions are in the envelope Here and Now will take the path, go straight and do not turn Hurry I’d give you a flashlight, but what’s the point, if you go to work at the lighthouse for a few More minutes in the dark to suffer you can – Yes, of course, I uncertainly looked around once again to make sure the veracity of what is happening – especially in the sky, the moon his Eyes to adjust – the Moon can cheat or to hide Just go to the lighthouse – Well Thanks for the help – that’s all thank you, the Car started up and drove away Left to follow the strange advice a Light gray stripe trail snaked between the tall trees of the has kept But tense silence guessed the presence of something huge and living, like the vast ocean, stood on the threshold of the fisherman’s house Though, and the comparison seemed ridiculous, but these are the feelings themselves were awakened as soon as the forest surrounded me on all sides One of the greatest jokes of the night loneliness is that you cease to distinguish between his own breathing and even your voice, They seem to be strangers living separate lives So what happens when the soul realizes itself separate from the body and awakens the fear And the frightened soul dainty food for the lurking nightmares Stony path and up the hill a sure sign that to the right place were soon to go, in fact, soon after the tops of the trees stood out a man-made monolith Column of the lighthouse occupied the top of a high hill, I opened handed the agent the envelope and found the key to Read the short note did not work had to go inside the switch on the wall to the right of the entrance lit garland small yellow light bulbs, which made the interior lighting a beacon, trusting More to instinct than logic, I hurried to close the door on the massive bolt Now it was time to read the instructions: “Turn on the lights and stay in the lighthouse until morning” Hereinafter repeated the old terms of the transaction, to work a shift for a fee I was paid for time in a secluded location and simple action Many can only dream of such a Room is not pampered comfort, Even in my unpretentious taste the atmosphere seemed austere To stay was given a small cubby with a bed and table and Chairs were not a Hanger served as hammered nails in the wall Behind a partition under the stairs was a bathroom – toilet and hand washing All the rest of the space was occupied by a wide spiral staircase going up Following the instructions I climbed to the top and looked around the Moon for some time disappeared behind the grey clouds as far As the look, to the horizon stretched an endless Black forest is the Immense Main breaker was at once the Mechanism has succumbed to the stress, there was a loud click and a blinding spotlight freely cut the in TWAIN the Yellow light touched the trees, and they shuddered, as if from a gust of wind the Whole array to the horizon worried, again without apparent reason the Black forest began to boil, spilling into the sides of thousands of small dots Ink spatters turned into a huge winged creatures They had their homes and silently flew up to the light Gathered a whole flock, Some flying so close to the viewing platform, that you could see their giant birds with human faces the bird hovered in the sky with closed eyes the Light was attracted and kept their Sense of fear paralyzed me, making a humble observer of the nightmarish representation of a Winged tornado surrounded the lighthouse And then the woods filled with ghostly fireflies twinkle Sparks flashed and slowly rushed up, like fallen stars, who want to return home, My lighthouse for the blind distracted the monsters, not allowing them to attack fireflies Pale face predators distorted impotent rage – Let – rustled terrible pack – release But before the dawn was still far away, a stream of fireflies has only gained momentum Senior office again checked with the tests, and, muttering his thoughts out loud, just said a minute earlier – I Think, now a patient’s life is not in danger This week indicators are positive, it makes no Sense to keep it on the machine Will gradually withdraw from the artificial coma Relatives told me to call but now, later will Call them in the morning – Well, the second medic paused and added, is a very suitable case for the rider – Not the word At some point I thought that the guy will not return
