'We are a blip. A spec of dust.
To be wiped off the face of time
like you might a bike chain's rust.
But to each of us,
we are everything'
Jessie's sick of Leeds, a city she thought she would never leave. But the aimlessness of the people she once believed she would always need is suffocating.
Wondering whether she's had enough, in a dirty nightclub not too far off. Jessie's blinded by the light of Allie Touch a singer/songwriter with a taste for big ambition, amongst some other stuff.
Feeling rough in the five in the morning half light, Jessie's sight is fixed on the path that Allie writes, and like a moth to a flame in the night she ignites.
