The evergreen trees are swaying in the wind.
It sounds like a hurricane will come.

A bird soars over my head and in a flash it’s gone.
A raindrop trickles down my back.

My dog slides past me, and I race to catch up to her.
Leaves crunch under her feet.

The footsteps of my sister sneaking up on me
get louder as she nears. Then silence, and I feel
her cold hands touching my neck.
