I’m on my own

I’m at work and it’s a weekday, but I’m the only one out of 25 in the office. There’s dark freezing fog outside and I can only just see the light in the carpark. There’s a test rig in the lab moving things ghostlike around on its own. Soon, I’ve got to cycle all the way across Lichfield in the fog. No, I’m not freaked out.
