Prompt: The lights appeared out of the darkness
The lights appeared out of the darkness. Actually, it was more like the darkness rushed to escape the light, scurrying backward in one great wave. That’s how it works, you see. Darkness is just the absence of light, after all, and not a thing unto itself. Despite that, I licked my lips and counted to ten before I stepped out of my hiding place and out onto the road. You never could be too careful with these sorts of things. I, apparently, wasn’t careful enough. I still ended up being abducted by aliens. You shouldn’t follow lights in the darkness.
