In the middle of the night, episode 6


Both bedroom windows are wide open, allowing the delightful fresh breezes in. It feels wonderful to snuggle under the warm covers in the cool room.

I hear a noise. I turn my head, so my right clears the pillow. Was that a little girl?

More noises. But now I realize, they are coming from outside. What the heck?! It sounds like a bunch of kids staging a riot in the street.....

Then comes a howl.

Ah. It's the coyotes. From the sounds, it must be the whole pack. Yipping, howling, barking. They are really going at it.

Wonder why they carry on like that... I wonder as a drift back off to sleep to the singing.

  1. I like how the coyote's jabbering reminded you of a pack of girls.
