The crisp February air gushed through the open driver’s side window as she navigated the darkening streets of downtown Memphis. The traffic was especially calm this evening, more people staying in on Valentine’s than going out she guessed. As Trina passed the Orpheum, she ran a hand through her short, cut, damp dark hair, and came to a lonely stop at Beale Street. The combination of chilly air, damp hair, and the lack of a sweater brought about a shiver. This wasn’t one of her more intelligent moves.
