There was some coming-of-age ceremony in this town. All the people who had come of age that year were put in a box at the middle of town for the whole night and they could either stay in the box or leave the town. I was one of those being put in the box that night. I asked some questions of one of the elders because I was worried. I asked if we would be given any light source, and he said we could bring something if we wanted but we wouldn't be given anything. I also asked if my necklaces, which I actually own and wear daily, would be ok. He told me that it would attract the beasts and that I should leave them for my own safety and that of the others. I didn't, because they mean a lot to me.
So as night came, I and the others were put into the box and fastened in. The "beasts" were demon dogs that came the same night each year and preyed on those who came of age or those who helped them. They could not abide bright light. But silver attracted them and they were everywhere. I was the person who decided to leave the box, get to a "safe" area and leave town. I had a bright key chain light, which I also actually own, so that helped to keep them at bay, and I managed to get to the safe point. and get a ticket onto a plane at some airport.
However, no one could tell me which way to go to get to the air port, nor could they even tell me which stores were still open. So I made my way to my* house. Somehow I got there without assistance, and got up to my* room, which was brightly lit and a friend of mine irl and Hiei, from an anime called Yu Yu Hakusho, were hanging out there. This really comforted me so I fell asleep with the lights on after talking a bit and Hiei agreeing to keep the demon hounds away.
