2 am. Suddenly lights go off, voices go up, darkness breaks out.

A deafening roar blocks my ears. 

I can't sit, can't hear myself think, let alone play Candy Crush. I start pacing round the dark room, then the building, hoping something, anything will stop the monotonous rumbling. But the noise gets louder every instant. Until suddenly, the ventilator starts bursting again and the TV resumes blaring. Thank Heavens, the noise in my ears has died.

2 minutes later, it's dark again, and the noise is back. 

I sit on my bed, eyes closed, trying to shut the noise out with all might. 
Dammit, who knew silence could be so loud?
