All darkness, except for the lights from the houses casting an orange glow down the street.
Silhouetted birds sat in the trees, like death himself.
The wind wailed as the leaves rustled around.
Jack-o-lanterns stared like dead dubious delinquents.
A cold breeze nipped my nose.
A million eyes stared at me.
As I stepped, the mud turned to stone.
Every sound seemed to echo around.
There was a crunch of gravel that I didn’t make; could it have been made by the one I loved?
She will go back to where she belongs
Tomorrow by night.
