House of Logs
By Beth Beutler
1 Yesterday, my friend Rochelle had invited me to spend a week at her family's cabin in the mountains of Virginia. I sat cross-legged on my puffy comforter while I pondered what I wanted to do. I prefer the city, so I did some thinking before answering her. I wasn't sure if I'd like to spend a week in a cold, musty, cobwebbed cabin with a bunch of wild animals around me. It didn't sound like much of a vacation, but how would I say no without hurting her feelings?
2 As if she were reading my mind, Rochelle called.
3 "Hi, Vicky. Did you make a decision about coming to the cabin with us in July?"
4 "I, uh, well, I've been thinking about it," I answered.
5 "What do you think?" she pressed.
6 "Well, I... uh, to be honest, Rochelle, I'm not sure how much I would enjoy being in the woods for a week."
7 Rochelle answered, "Oh, Vicky. It's so peaceful and beautiful. I'm sure you would like it."
8 "Well, I'm a little nervous about being around wild animals and stuff," I continued.
9 This time Rochelle laughed out loud. "The only wild animal is my dog! She goes crazy up there. Come on. I'm sure you would like it."
