The Beginning - a 100 word story

(Picture courtesy : keypoulanmusic.com via Google)

His world was dark.  The walls were closing in on him.   Invisible arms enveloped him in a bear hug, pushed him forward.  He resisted, almost vexed.  He did not want to go on but seemed not to have a choice.  He could hear strange sounds, none of which made any sense.  It was starting again – a crushing bear hug.  It propelled him towards the bright light at the end of the tunnel. His ears hurt from the cacophony, his eyes from the bright lights, his lungs hurt as the first wisps of air seeped into them.  He cried.  People cheered.
