All those who couldn’t stop froze, those who were driven into an infinite circle came out of it. Everything that once began ended in one instant.
The universe froze, and all the invisible took shape. The light reflecting from the water surface was bubbling, the scents hung in colored clouds, the breeze froze in a curved mass, and the time fell into silver sparkles.
How long did this hitch last? There was nothing to count because time had simply disappeared. And it continued its flow. One, two, three.
Sounds came to life, bubbles of light burst, aromas mixed and got carried away with the wind. The sand in the hourglass started rustling, counting the seconds.
Four, five, six.
