The litter left behind told its own story: the teens had gathered here intent on squeezing out every bit of fun from stolen moments. They had not believed the stories told of mysterious disappearances on moonlit nights. With the arrogance of youth, they believed themselves to be invincible and beyond danger. Outsiders came and investigated, believing they would find the missing persons. The lifelong residents of the godforsaken town knew, however, that no amount of searching would yield results. The young ones had been taken and would never be returned.
Who do you think took the young ones?
