Drabble: Voices in the Darkness

He couldn’t see anything, but he could still hear the voices. And even when his ears failed, his limbs were his eyes, feeling every bump and obstacle. Step by careful step, he navigated the darkness, focusing only on the goal ahead. The voices grew louder. More excited, but also more chaotic. He couldn’t understand the words, but he could hear the thoughts behind them.


Almost there.

Don’t give up.

He pressed on. Finally, his hands hit a wall and the voices burst into cheers. In one movement, he pulled the blindfold off.

“Yellow team wins!”
