“Under the moon, the road that ran from the edge of her forest gleamed like water, but when she stepped out onto it, away from the trees, she felt how hard it was, and how long. She almost turned back then; but instead she took a deep breath of the woods air that still drifted to her, and held it in her mouth like a flower, as long as she could.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

In a quiet town, set back in the woods of Ohio, a darkness festers.
