The Gong of Midnight

The clock in the hall struck midnight.  Sarah could hear the loud booming gong

“bong” “bong” “bong” her heart thudded louder with each gong.  She should be fast asleep, but sleep refused to come.    There was something in the air…  She could feel it.  Something not quite right.  As if pulled by an invisible force Sarah found herself pulling on her night coat and heading out into hall.  The last gong sounded as she went down the hall and out the main entrance.  Outside she stopped for a moment as the cold air hit, only for  a brief moment and then once more she was walking as if led in a specific direction to a specific place.  A place she had been to only in her dreams.
