She so wanted to belong. But, she was invisible. Nobody noticed when they didn’t see her for days, weeks, and months.
She locked herself behind the door and, just to make sure, put a chain across.

One day, she decided that she should go out to see other humans.
So, she unlocked the door, unhooked the chain, and stepped outside.

The street was quiet.
She walked farther, looking for a sign of other humans.
All the windows and doors of the town were shut, and inhabitants were nowhere in sight.
The town had been dead for quite a while.
