Secrets to Keep
My mouth tasted like a desert, and I looked like crap. Another night of tossing and turning, but at least I did get some sleep thanks to an old standby.
Some secrets should remain a secret, and digging out my old fairy night light is one more I’d keep even from my best friends. I hadn’t used it since grade school but couldn’t stand the thought of one more night lying awake in the dark.
A soft glow from a Tinker-bell lookalike had pushed the shadows to the far corners of my room giving me a false sense of security until I drifted to sleep.
