Creative writing - A cold night in Swansea.

Extracts from this document...


A cold night in Swansea It was a cold wet evening in Swansea. There was a dull light coming from the moon, which was only added to by the dim glow of streetlights, which were placed either side of the tall detached houses. Cars were parked on the side of the road with uniform spaces in-between. It was quiet, strangely quiet, like an empty church. There was no traffic going along the road and there wasn't a sound to be heard except the footsteps of a young lady. Rose was in her early twenties, slim, and just under six foot tall.
