Lying by a stream that tunnels towards the sea, away from the world's din, Archie is interrupted again. Reluctantly he emerges from his head and is set back on his usual pattern. Then, stuck in the middle of a pointless game at the youth centre he makes a choice to deviate from the uninvited tumult. Without leaving his head, Archie puts his headphones on and dares himself to follow a fellow outsider. He finds himself in a strange place where he is forced to adjust quickly, so he absorbs himself in something that both excites and numbs his head and ends with an unexpected confrontation.
