WARNING: a dark response to the prompt.
The streets were deserted, but at every corner and turn she heard voices.
Laughter echoed down alleys, but when she looked there was nothing. No-one.
She felt she was going mad. The voices were in her head, teasing and tormenting her.
No-one believed her and none would listen.
She held her head in her hands, mentally screaming at them to stop until finally she could bear it no more and threw herself against a shop display window.
The glass shattered and the voices stopped.
She was miraculously unharmed and stood, picking the broken shards from her clothes.
She looked down at the pavement and saw reflections in a small puddle of a couple laughing and joking, but when she turned, her reality was different and she was totally alone in a world of silence.
She had passed through the barriers of sanity and left hers on the other side.
