"What was that?" Caydence reached for her older
"You are going crazy Cay, there is nothing out
there." Paige rolled her eyes and pulled herself from her
sister's death grip.
They continued walking down the dark street, lit only
by the occasional street light, toward their apartment building.
A Soft growl behind them made Caydence shriek.
"Jeez Caydence, calm down, it's probably just a stray
cat or something."
Paige shook her head, but quickened her pace,
