It was always an awesome sight watching the lights cascade up the tower like a reverse golden waterfall. It was one of the familiar landmarks and subject of many a romantic movie.
It was a September night, nothing special, and the lights shone out into the clear skies as they’d always done.
It wasn’t until pictures were developed and enhanced that people saw it, a shaft of light that shot through the top of the tower, like a burning thread through the eye of a needle.
No-one traced where it had originated, and none could locate where the stream had ended.
But the experts confirmed it was from that night that things started to change.
