Sure he was alone for the afternoon, Connor turned the volume up, sprawled on the sofa and closed his eyes.

            A trumpet fanfare filled the room. He loved the building sense of anticipation that sound always created deep within him. As the familiar theme assailed his ears, Connor’s outstretched arms and twirling fingers began to conduct an orchestra that only he could see.

            He was suddenly hit in the face by a cushion.

            “Oi! Turn it down!” Abby yelled from upstairs.

            Connor hastily removed the Stars Wars disc from the player and resolved to check for housemates first, next time.
