Most doors were either completely gone or mere remnants of rotten wood and rusty metal. The open doorways looked eerie as only darkness showed within. Many roofs had collapsed and in some cases had taken the entire building with it. Others looked in decent shape and were simply dirty and filled with bird nests.
Mirfield, once nothing more than a simple, quiet town had all but faded away from history. Silence had taken the place of the sound of playing children, talking neighbors and the sounds of a working community. The silence was deafening.
The police station once offered those in need and danger the protection they needed, but all this station can offer now is a home to animals and a shelter from the rain. On the bright side at least the cells were empty.
Street after street of abandoned homes made for a terrifying thought. Each house was once a home, a home belonging to a family and now there was only emptiness. But even though many buildings had found a new purpose there was just no way this town’s former self could ever be restored.
Doors were boarded up tightly and some showed signs of painted symbols with meanings known only to those who put them there, but whoever put them there’s long gone too. Paint crumbled off of the walls and were slowly replaced by vines that crawled their way towards the rooftops.
Leurbost, once rich with life, hopes, dreams and aspirations was now a ghost town in the truest sense. Were it not for the occasional bird call the only sounds in this town was that of the wind. The sounds of market vendors, playing families and a loving community were no more.
The lighthouse was once a beacon in multiple senses of the word. The once bright light on the outskirts of town was now merely a broken pillar and the perfect spot for nesting birds who gladly took advantage of this.
Despite the many animals that inhabit this town it was still a very unsettling sight to behold. Nature had taken its toll on the vast majority of town. But even with all the animals that lived here now and made this town their new home you couldn’t escape the feeling that so much had been lost forever.
