It started at 12 midnight. The vibrations shook the earth, I know because my bed reacted to it.
I could hardly register the sound let alone know where it was coming from, my heart registered and pounded incessantly.
What could it be?
At first, I absurdly thought it was a canon (you know the kind that goes off during burials). I hadn’t seen any obituaries along the way home, so it couldn’t be a burial. Belatedly, my heart reacting to the thought creeping into my mind, Robbers! Surely it is December, the main ‘ember’ month.
