With that, she walked into the rain.
She didn’t look back.
That was the last time anyone saw her.
The town was full of rumours after her disappearance – as if they could make sense of what had happened that horrid night.
Some believed she was abducted by aliens.
Other’s thought she ran away to join the circus.
Yet, they weren’t even close to the truth.
The truth was much darker than any of the simple-minded townsfolk could ever come up with.
To this day, her scarred face was imprinted in my brain, as she looked at me with pity and despair.
I only wished the spirits were taking care of her, of the girl I loved.
