The city was eerily quiet that night, with only the distant sound of sirens to break the silence. Sarah had always been fascinated by the city at night; it felt like a different world, one where anything could happen. She walked briskly down the dark alleyway, her heart pounding in her chest as she clutched her purse tightly.
The sun had just set behind the rolling hills, casting long shadows across the small town of Millfield. It was a quiet night, as most nights were in this sleepy little place. But something felt different tonight. There was a buzz in the air, a sense of anticipation that hung heavy on every street corner and in every dark alleyway.
