Dimly she perceived a sound, barely penetrating her consciousness - only gently feathering at the limits of audible perception.

Chimes. Distant chimes.

No, not distant - merely faint, and the melody was unmistakable. Devra heard the bells of Big Ben.

Eyes drawn - seemingly by the force of an unknown, unknowable will, Devra's focus shifted to the lego model of Big Ben.

Big Ben moved.
