Very Short Late Night Writing Example

Winter was creeping ever nearer as the chilling midnight fog engulfed the town and replaced the air with a resonating smokey-white tint. London became a ghost town.

The sound of a coin falling on pavement echoed down the street of solitude. "Oh thank you, thank you! But I must ask, why is a lady like yourself, out here alone at this hour of night?"
