Night settles as I pad down the stairs to my bed. Kids are snoring. Parents are reading between the sheets or in the bath. All is well.

I rest my gaze on the front door and listen. The car glides to a stop. Footsteps steal across the porch.

The lock turns.

I rise to greet the other one in silence as she taught me. She scratches my ears and drops a treat before she slips into the crawlspace.

And all are present. All is well. I stretch and fall asleep.
