Her destruction continued. Autumn raised her hands, causing large groups of trees to spring up, destroying entire neighborhoods. When she got to Cypress Street, she smiled.

It was the sound of shouting and screaming. And crying. But with this noise being generated at the subconscious level, Autumn was hardly aware of it.
