overview Walking home from school, another boring day in the life of Candice. The day was nice, blue skies and sunshine with the occasional white fluffy cloud passing by. It was so nice that she thought about cutting through an alley way to stop at her favorite candy shop on the way home to buy a few treats. She'd been running a little low on her snacks and she did have quite the sweet tooth. She popped a piece of hard candy in her mouth as she turned down the little alley to cut over to the next street. As she walked down the lane she noticed that it was longer than usual. She frowned slightly when the world started to suddenly warp around her! Everything started to twist and change as if the high schooler had just stepped into a nightmare. Startled, she quickly turned around to try and jog back to her usual route only to find nothing but endless strangeness. A shiver ran up her spine as she turned to try and cut through to the other side like her original plan. "I-it's probably just a circus or something...r-right?" she tried to rationalize as her legs trembled with each step, "I'm sure things are fine."
