I sat on the end of the dock at the pond, staring at the reflection of the moonlight on the water. Another crystal clear night. Not that unusual...
I could hear the people talking and the noise from the tourist attractions near by. It was so... Loud. Why is everything so loud now? Not to mention all the bright lights. Why couldn't people remember how nice it was to just enoy the peace an quiet while looking at the stars?
(BTW, I'm looking for a banner for this story if anyone is willing to make it!)
