Where children play and people like Shakespeare live in peace. Shakespeare made daily rounds through the streets cheering up people and having the usual chat with some strangers and friends.

As the clouds grew darker and darker, while Shakespeare made his daily rounds everyday through the streets of his home town. While at home Shakespeare’s wife took great notice to these growing clouds. Anne thought they might symbolize a upcoming tragedy, but she quickly pushed that thought out of her already worried mind.

Shakespeare thought he might investigate, even through others have warned him that it might come at a great risk. As they to where taking into the account of the strange weather. By the time Shakespeare went on this search for theses men they strangely disappeared, and the sky continued to rage on with intense furry.

They all toast with the wine they have taken from Shakespeare’s stash. While watching the men of her past she hit’s the door with her arm, and causes it to move. Anne’s mind goes blank with shock of being caught, but she notices that the men’s heads all snap up at the same time. This movement was so fast it didn’t even seem like a movement at all. With all the energy she has, Anne runs for her life. “Where’t thou running, Anne dear’t.”
