Agnes lay awake staring at the roof of the tent. She gave Archie a nudge.
‘What now?’ he grumbled.
‘Don’t you hear that?’
‘I didn’t hear anything.’ Archie rolled over.
‘This wasn’t what I had in mind when you said you had a surprise planned.’
A strange howl sounded in the distance.
‘Was that a wolf?’
‘Could be,’ Archie mumbled. ‘You can get them around here.’
‘That’s it, I’m sleeping in the car.’ Agnes spent five minutes extricating herself from her sleeping bag then fumbling to open the tent door.
Archie heard her footsteps fading away and the car door slam.
Peace at last, he thought.
