place where something is always going on. Howell is generally a large town, but it is in the
middle of nowhere, farms and fields everywhere! Unless I wanted to hang out at the local
grocery store or Stop N' Shop, there wasn't much to do in town. Everyone comes to Cold

lanterns hang from the ceiling, shining bright light upon everyone. Light is known for making a
