FFfAW-Power Outage

He told me to meet him at the tower of 4th and Silver. I had no idea what tower he was talking about as I wasn't familiar with that side of town.

All the lights had gone out in the city due to a power outage and the only lights I could see were the car lights.

All of a sudden I saw the tower – black as night lined vertically with solar lights. I was able to conclude this was the tower he was referring to.

I pulled my car into the parking area and cautiously got out of my car. After all, it was very very dark.

Suddenly, a man in a menacing clown suit came up to me and I screamed and screamed. Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?

Laughing, Dale said, “It's just me!”

I could have killed him.

We walked to the Halloween party together.

I'll get him back because tonight I am a witch.
