The clock struck 12 with an echo that only Anna could feel so cold inside.Working nights was hard going into the dark musty parking garage always wondering if she would encounter some sort of trouble.Tonight Anna was completely alone,even the night security had left 20 minutes prior.She was ok though being an adult to finish her work and lock up the place.Gathering her personal items,she set the security alarm,locked up and headed for her car which sat at the end of the parking garage.All of a sudden she heard a sound,something coming closer but what,she was scared looking for her keys.Unable to find her keys she was forced to empty her purse.All of a sudden from the shadows jumps out a cat with a friendly meow.Anna's heart relaxed as she laughed to herself as her keys were in front of the pile which she dumped from her purse.In a sigh of relief she said bye to the kitty and headed home.
