The longer I wait, the more teeth that wind's got.
I could sneak down to McGinley's place, check everything's fine.
I'm used to sneaking out at night. I love walking under the moon and the stars.
I'd check Grandma was fast asleep then slip out quietly. And every time when I got in, I'd close the door, silent as dreamin', and sneak into bed. And always when I lay there, shivering and slowly getting warmer, I'd hear Grandma say quietly
"G'night, Anna Cody."
And I'd wonder if perhaps she wasn't just Grandma. Maybe she was the moon and stars, too.

    And by contrast... a much gentler piece... but wtf was she doing out so late at night? More to Anna Cody than meets the eye.

    Glad you liked the contrast. I felt it needed something of an interlude :)

    It was refreshing and relieved some of the tension!
