I opened my eyes to the tree’s auburn shadow dancing on the west wall. Crusts in my eyes scratched my cornea like an eagle jabbing its talons into prey. I try to swallow but my throat is dry; my spit feels like a lump of peanut butter. I scrunch my toes between the mattress and the footboard in an attempt to warm them. A piercing screech comes from the other side of the wall; it's probably Dad trying to move something heavy outside. "Just be quiet!" I whisper to myself.

As I wrapped my arms around a blanket and sank into the mattress, I heard it again! That was the end. There was no way I was going back to sleep now! I just lay there; what could it be? The sound was still coming from behind the wall and that's

Go see what's wrong with Ramey!"

My sister Carly came out into the garage and asked me if she could pet Ramey.

I snapped at her saying, "No! Just! Get! Out! Don’t look at her!”

Then I heard a car pull up by the house. It was Grandpa.
