The night was illuminated by the artificial light of the street-lamps and the silence was easily disturbed by animals and random sirens. The air was stiff with humidity and the wind was barely hanging on. A mostly consumed bottle of Dr. Pepper made nest on the desk of a local student who had been up working on a project for his professor, only to have passed out in front of his computer. In the background a stream of country music played forth from the speakers of an almost unnecessarily large stereo system. The room was still… except for the shadow.
