I saw the most beautiful thing that night... it was a gleaming castle with tall towers and strong-looking walls. I had no idea what I would do once I had reached it, I only knew that I wanted to get closer to what looked like a safe, happy place.

I was disappointed, but not surprised, to find that it was a structure of wire and white Christmas lights, put up in the park as part of a holiday display.

I stood there quietly for a second to compose myself, and got ready to trudge on towards the next illusion.
