The mist descended late one September evening. Few people gave it a moment's thought to begin with. It was just another autumn fog, maybe a little thicker than usual. Then there was that curious tingling sensation that spread across your skin like a nettle rash. Nobody worried to begin with. The rash caused itching and a little wheeziness, but it faded quickly enough. It was halfway through the second week since the coming of the mist that everything changed. It was the curious blurred vision that affected maybe half the population. If they looked at their reflection in the mirror, they would see a second, shadowy self, a translucent outline with staring, silvery eyes. Was it a trick of light, they wondered, an after-effect of the earlier stinging and wheezing. Within a month, nobody thought it was an illusion. The Shadow People had come. They would change our way of life forever.
