In a small town lives 8 friends, things start out as any friendship would but soon things start to get a little more interesting.

{The sunset had dipped below the horizon; casting the sky in a gradient going from golden yellows, oranges, and reds up to dark blues and smoggy purples. A quietness slowly worked its way throughout the small town as the residents started to head back home, the hustle and bustle of the day finally coming to an end.
It was a bitter afternoon in Senbridge; this fact hasn't stopped the small group of friends which had decided to go to the town's central park, Crescent Grounds.}
Doris: [Walks over to the waiting group and sighs.] I apologize for being late, I awoke later than I originally planned to.
Dawn: [Smiles and waves towards Doris.] Hello Doris! No need to apologize, I'm just glad that you could make it. How are you?
Doris: I am doing well, thank you for asking. [Smiles gently.]
Dawn: That's good to hear. If everyone is ready, we should get going
{Once they had all agreed, they make their way to the center of the park. There was a playground; it was built mainly for 
children, it was a beautiful spot that was very popular.}
Ruth: [Inhales the air and sighs.] I-It's so n-nice t-t-to be b-back a-a-at Crescent G-Grounds.
Loretta: It sure is! I love the park, so peaceful and quiet.
Dawn: Especially during the evening; I think we can all agree this is one of, if not, the best places to visit! 
Vincent: Well we can't stay here for long; it's going to get dark, we've been told not to be out here when it's dark.
Loretta: [Waves her hand dismissively.] Don't be such a party pooper, Vinny it'll be fine! Besides we have plenty of time before it gets dark.
Vincent: [Glares at Loretta.] I thought I told you not to call me that.
Loretta: [Grins mischievously.] Vinny! Vinny! Vinny!!!
Vincent: Okay that's it!
{Vincent starts to run after Loretta; who had already started running, she squealed as she tried to keep herself in front of the annoyed Vincent.}
Randy: Oh boy, here we go again...
