The sun began to set, melting into the meadows blooming with spring, and creating waves of a chilled breeze washing over the town. A girl was walking timidly, all alone except for the birds chirping in their nests and the crickets as a lullabye to the houses down the street. She began to feel alone, pushing aside all other thoughts buzzing in her mind, she turned her head, to reveal only the empty sidewalk, and the magnolia trees shadowing over her. Turn around, her mind ordered. Keep walking. Faster. Faster. The girl began to think of the monsters under her bed, and the werewolves- she looked up. A full moon. Don't think. Just walk. she told herself. Suddenly a hum flew out of her lips, a slow, lazy song drifting through. Then a soft voice, words strung together. A hop in her walk, then. Galloping, skipping, with a delicate girl's voice soaring, echoing. Suddenly the road home wasn't so lonely as it was before.
