Miranda had spent the day walking through the fields near her village. Later when she returned home, she found everything strangely quiet. Not only was her family gone, but everyone else in the village was as well. She spent several hours checking every house, but there was no sign of anyone. She wondered if there was some event the entire village was attending. She hadn’t heard of anything, but she decided to go home and wait to see if they returned. Slowly the hours ticked by and it grew dark, yet no one had come back. She tried contacting the Police, but there was no answer. All television and radio stations were just static. As the days went on she slowly got used to the quiet and her loneliness. At night she would curl up into a ball in her bed and wonder if she had been left behind somehow.
