When he kicks a bottle, a dog gets scared and starts to run, a crazy persecution that leads him to the Dark Alley. Darkness, strange noises, shades, an empty house and… there it is the yellow mystery of the night. In the end of the story the reader is invited to join the author in order to find out the yellow mystery of that night his own way.
