A long expected adventure

At dusk, I looked out the window and drew my breath. It was time. I dressed warmly, grabbed the bag I had prepared, and headed for the door. It was quite cold outside, but there was no wind and very few clouds; a bank of grey to the south, and some faint traces of pale pink above me. The crescent moon illuminated the winter landscape. I pulled my coat closer around me and started down the hill. The forest was silent, my boots creaking on the snow the only sound as I passed the icicle-coated cliffs. Upon reaching the bottom of the hill, I stopped and straightened my back. Then, I lifted the lid of the bin, threw the garbage bag inside, closed the bin and walked away.
