Anne ​didn't like the constant rain. "Mom!", she yelled. She walked towards the house near the farmhouse. "I'm here, Anne", Cheryl said. "Mom. I can't see​". Cheryl kissed her daughter. "We can't cook anything", she said. "When will the power come back on?", Anne asked. Cheryl didn't answer. "I have some candles. Lift one, and place it in your right hand". Anne nodded. She saw in the gloom the newspaper. Written on it was the headline: ​KANSAS TEENAGERS DISAPPEAR UNDER MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES​. Anne could barely read. Then she was grateful as the lights across Kansas was turned on...and everything was returned to normal.

"I'll order pizza Mom", Anne said. Cheryl nodded. As they blew out the candles, they placed them back into place, and she watched the farmhouse nearby. 

To her shock, the scarecrow was missing from the wet fields.
