She was never a lone girl, but when she was at the pier she wouldn’t prefer it any other way. She loved the sound of the chirping crickets and the gentle breeze rustling through the trees behind her. She always hated the noise of the busy traffic. The honking horns and the roaring cars were a colossal irritation that’s unable to avoid.

She walked away, back into the city lights she dreaded, hoping to come back to the beautiful nature the next day as every day!
