Terry watched the white wolf drink from the spring through his night vision binoculars in silence. Having observed the animal for so long, Terry had grown some attachment for it.

A dad was carrying a steaming mug of hot chocolate with a generous piece of apple pie for his daughter. Lyla swallowed and turned her attention to the other side.

Right in the middle of the dancers was Jake seated in a throne-like big chair with a shining silver crown on his head. His eyes were glassy, like he was hypnotized, and focused on the dancing ladies while he grinned stupidly like a buffoon. -@kemmyb/center>
