On the night of a cold, rainy day of June 6, 1864, a man’s wife had been murdered for her brand-new, pearl necklace. This would be the day that no one would ever forget. This is the day that Reginald Brown lost his mind and wanted to seek vengeance on the world. Reginald Brown, the top architect of the biggest city in the United States, decided to create a walkway that would split the city into two equivalent pieces and to get to the other side of the city you would have to cross this walkway. He worked day in and day out for exactly two years until the walkway was finally finished on June 6, 1866. The walkway was just over two miles long and a tenth of a mile wide. It was outlined by big, beautiful trees. Unique, black bricks laid gracefully upon a layer of light-brown dirt made up the walkway. This was the most beautiful walkway to ever have been created, but for the amount of beauty that was tied to this walkway, a greater amount of death epitomized it. The walkway had a vile stench to it, one that made rotten eggs smell like fresh roses. The walkway somehow had an ability to make people disappear with nothing but the blood from the victims left behind. At night, you could hear screams and yelling from the walkway, even though no one is there. What once was a beautiful walkway has turned into a blood-covered, city-separating piece of land which has been barricaded off from the people of the city. As of today this walkway has ended the lives of over fifty people, including that of Reginald Brown’s as well.
