The pitter patter of a child's feet signaled a new beginning; it was a new sunset, a better day.

"Hey, Do you hear that sound?"

The thumps hush and a young girl nods.

"It's the shadows, they're talking about us"

An adult leans in close , not letting a breath go unheard.

"What are they saying?" "Silence! They'll hear you!"

Mumbling begins, attracting the attention of the outsiders.


AN: From the start this was meant to be funny, but maybe not to everyone? Sorry about that!

Thank you for reading this extremely short piece of mine. If you liked it tell me why! If you hated I still wanted no point is that I'd like any type of criticism be it harsh and honest or generous and kind.
