She moaned softly: “Thank you.”
Surprised but pleased, the boy grinned and patted her affectionately on the bottom and said: “Hope you didn’t get any splinters!”
The boy walked to the door and glanced back at the girl. She still seemed to be fast asleep; and if she had actually been awake as he now believed, well, that was even better. Either way, he was going to have a lot of fun playing with her.
Tiffany slowly opened one eye and watched as the door closed quietly behind the boy. She smiled, thinking of how she had fooled him into believing she had been asleep the whole time: He’d be sure to come back now.
