Onwards and Upwards

Thesis arrives a day later, at the bottom of a huge set of steps carved into the very mountain. Looking up, Thesis says a prayer.
They seem unending but Thesis steels himself and takes them one step at a time.
Thanks to Kords help, he has managed to recover fully from his ordeal on the Mountain and plods up the unforgiving stone stairway.
It continues for what seems like hours, but just as Thesis is about to give up and rest as best he can, he hears voices. A crowd of voices.
Lumbering up the steep steps as best as he’s able to in his heavy armour, Thesis catches sight of his friends. He calls to them joyously. He’s so happy.
Smiling broadly, Thesis slows to a jog and then he hears something else…
Is that music?
