I felt weirdly elated; coupled with the fear of not knowing what’s lurking behind every crevice and holds. An army of ants, a rare bird’s nest or worse, a snake. One loose rock too and it could be the end of my outdoor mischief.
But I never paid the slightest attention to it since my face has always been glued to my phone. A slave chained to emails and other business agenda.
