no one locks their doors around here, it’s not as if it will keep anything that truly wants in out.

your phone rings but you don't recognize the number. "hello?" you answer, a static hiss and broken words on the other side. "hello?" you try again. they seem frantic, and it sounds a lot like they're screaming your name right before the line goes dead.

the internet stops working for periods at a time, mobile signals fritz out, the landlines crackle. maybe it’s another storm, you tell yourself, and ignore the clement weather and the flickering at the edge of your vision. it will pass.

there's a report in the newspaper urging people to stay out of the woods because there is a pack of wild dogs in there. five attacked, two dead. you don’t know why they need to warn people, no one goes in there anyway.

the most western section of bayou gauche is bethel park, the most suburban area that also happens to be the area found to be most affluent. realty in bethel park goes for a pretty penny, causing most of the residences to be large homes. however, there are times when a small family can find their starter home on the outer most section of bethel park for a great deal, though this is rare. bethel park is considered to be the cleanest looking section of bethel park, and is home to the prestigious freedom ranch religious center located on park street.

the more rural and least affluent area of bayou gauche is on the outskirts of town, almost tip-toeing the city limits. dogwood drive is a dirt road leading to sunshine valley, the biggest of bayou gauche's few trailer parks, all located in the outskirts. the ratio of those impoverished living in the outskirts compared to those living in any other section of bayou gauche are almost 4:1, earning this section a reputation as the "slums" of bayou gauche despite a sense of community to be envied in its inhabitants. this too could be contributed to the supernatural gang that runs one of the biggest business in the section. this section lies the most east of all the sections of bayou gauche.

diner that’s been serving malted milkshakes for so long that cocky young boys used to rest their elbows on the bar counter to brag about enlisting in the second world war and anyone who walks in there can feel their mustard-gas and gunpowder ghosts bleeding up from the rips in the red leather booth seats.

antique stores chocked full of moth-eaten handkerchiefs, used coca cola bottles, avon makeup bags, obscure comic books, metal lunchboxes, dull pocketknives, and gaudy plastic crosses that used to hang from the rear-view mirrors of people whose crackly radios only ever played glenn beck and elvis presley.

the old newspaper went out of business thirty years ago, its former residence an empty shell with the windows punched out. old copies still skate through empty streets like tumbleweeds. they might as well have been new. the stories never change, not here.

tourists ignore the ruins behind your home. they aren’t beautiful, not preserved or retouched like the acropolis. they are bitter reminders of a fallen civilization, smashed into the earth by hundreds of invaders over time. this temple is scarred and desecrated. the air sparks with the anger of the ancient gods.
