Auditory Illusion

When I was in high-school I was head-over-heels in love with a boy in my year. Five and a half years. Never told him. Every time I saw him, I’d hear bells. Like wind-chimes. When there were no bells, wind-chimes or even wind.

This happens to my protagonist, Maggie, too and I was interested in why this would happen (excluding my being insane), so I did a little research and came across this really excellent and entertaining video. Have a watch and tell me what you think.

Hah! See? I’m not a raving lunatic in need of a foil hat. It’s auditory illusion…and unrequited love (aww).
