The sun had just set over the horizon, casting an orange and pink glow across the sky. The sounds of crickets chirping and leaves rustling in the gentle breeze filled the air. It was a peaceful evening in the small town of Millfield, where everyone knew each other's names and there were no secrets. But that was all about to change with the arrival of a new family in town. They came out of nowhere, with their flashy cars and designer clothes, turning heads wherever they went.
The city was ablaze with neon lights as Emma made her way through the crowded streets. Her eyes were fixed on the sky, searching for any sign of a shooting star. She had heard that tonight was the peak of a meteor shower, and she wasn't going to miss it for the world. As she weaved her way through the throngs of people, bumping shoulders and dodging street performers, something caught her eye. A glimmer in the alleyway just ahead.
