I am standing with friends on some kind of balcony or dock.  it’s white.  everything else is pitch black.  we’re outside but only the stars are visible, there are no other clues about our surroundings.  we might as well be standing on the edge of the earth.  my friends are joking and and drinking and encouraging me to come inside.  i can’t, i tell them while holding my wand, i’m waiting for someone.  i focus intently on the sky, waiting for the star to appear.
