Lynetta's Loon
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Lynetta sat straight up in the dark room. Chills went down the back of her neck, causing her hairs to stick out.
 
2     "What was that?" her sister, Danielle, whispered loudly from the lower bunk.
 
3     "I don't know," whispered Lynetta. She leaned over the side of the bed and looked into her sister's frightened face. "I think it is some kind of bird," she added to sooth her little sister's fears.
 
4     "It sure sounded spooky," muttered Danielle.
 
5     "I'm sure it's nothing that will hurt us," Lynetta reassured her sister. "Just try and get back to sleep."
 
6     Lynetta lay back in her own bed and tried to take her own advice. Twice more, though further away, she heard the low arching call and then the crazed laughter at the end. Then she fell asleep.
 
7     Aunt Maria came into their room the next morning.
 
8     "Time to get up, sleepy heads," she said and started to open the curtains to their corner room. "It is a perfect day out there today. It's time to be up and dressed. Breakfast is ready."
 
9     In moments the girls were up and dressed. They were both tired but excited about the day's prospects, too.
