This is my first Drabble so go easy on the newby!!!

The chill wind buffeted him, ruffling his dark hair as he picked his way down the uneven cobbles of Blackjack Street. A lazy wind, his father would have called it, as it seemed to cut straight though him instead of going around. He pulled up the collar of his military jacket as faint drizzle began to spot horizontally across his face. The lenses of his glasses creating miniature kaleidoscopes from the reflections of shop windows as he passed by.
It was then that he noticed the footsteps behind him and he turned warily. Something eyed him hungrily from the shadows.
"We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight."
