Write a short story or flash leading up to this story's ending.

I always enjoyed this nightly ritual, and tonight, the snow and peace added to the pleasure. Following Jake, tracing his deliberate steps with my own, I realized his path was not a straight line from point A to B but a pleasing forty paces of serpentine, meandering grace. Jake not only knew his work, he delighted in it: a gentleman of a guard and a poet as well.
