The sweet innocence that had once surrounded her no longer lingered. Part of her felt shame for not being the girl she used to be, wishing nothing had changed, no time had passed. She wanted to run through the hay fields, using her imagination to keep her busy until well after dark.

Things could never go back because she knew better now. The bogeyman was all too real.
