The sun had set hours ago, and the moon provided the only light in the small village. The streets were empty, except for a young girl walking with purpose. She wore a long coat that brushed against her ankles as she walked, a hood covering her face. In her hand was a small wooden box, intricately carved with symbols that seemed to glow faintly in the pale moonlight.
The small town of Millfield had never experienced a crime as gruesome and baffling as the one that rocked its quaint streets on the night of August 4th. A local couple, the Johnsons, were found brutally murdered in their own home, with no apparent motive or suspect. The entire town was left reeling with shock and fear as the police scrambled to piece together any clues or leads.
