I was walking, walking. I heard noises, noises that repeated themselves constantly. I'm just irritative today, I thought. But this was no common irritative mood. I heard clanging outside, clanging, repeating itself constantly. Clanging that grew louder and louder. At that point I knew it was something more. I'll get over it I thought, I'll get over it. As my mind started constantly repeating itself like the sounds that I heard. Now I heard knocking, auughhh! Getting louder and louder along with the clanging outside. These sounds going on and on and getting louder and louder. I grasped the hairs on my head and tugged, with my eyes closed. THE IRRITATION! The sounds grew louder and louder, not stopping, never stopping. I ran to the nearest door, opened it, and jumped in to the room. I crawled into the corner, wishing for the noises to stop. Now I heard rapping, a rapping on the door. No, the sounds. The sounds! THE IRRITATING SOUNDS! I tugged my hair, and cried in pain. STOP, STOP. The clocks ticked: \"tick-tick-tick\", outside I heard footsteps \"pat-pat-pat\", I heard ringing bells \"ring-ring-ring.\" All of these accursed sounds joining this infernal symphony, bent on driving me insane! I had enough of it, with my hands plugging my ears I screamed. Screamed as loud as I could, trying to drown the annoying sounds that tortured me so. Screamed as loud as any person could. So loud that creatures residing in the distant heavens would hear me. I stopped, I breathed deeply. I breathed deep breathes as I sat in the corner clutching my knees. I stopped my breathing for a second to see if the sounds finally stopped. I shut my eyes and concentrated on the sounds. Concentrated on the sounds that were no longer there. Then began a silence, as if the whole world had gone quiet. A silence where I could only hear my heart beating. I took a deep breathe. Peace, at last. I got up, walked to the door, opened it and smiled.

Then the sounds returned.
