The mist would drown the town in a murky silence, our whispers faceless bouncing off hidden walls, waiting for the song of that distant rain. Then, it would leave as quickly as it had come, rising swiftly and vanishing in the horizon, taking with it the sound of the weary footsteps of the unseen traveller who came in the darkness.
