Enough about my confusion. It's a state of mind, they say. I think I've taken up permanent residence in that state.
On with today's hook! This little snippet comes from "Happily Ever After". Here, George Mather is awakened in the middle of the night. His daughter, Rowena, is having a frightening nightmare.
She sat in the center of her big bed, eyes squeezed shut, flailing her arms at some unseen enemy. One high-pitched shriek followed upon another.
George seized hold of her hands. Rowena fought against him, twisting and turning like a creature possessed. When she drew away, he lunged after her, caught her around the middle, and pulled her onto his lap. Her terror gave her strength. It took every bit of effort George could muster to hold her. She squirmed and struggled to free herself from his grasp, but he wrapped his arms tightly around her and whispered her name over and over, refusing to let her go. Gradually the horror diminished. Her shrieking turned to shuddering cries. The cries at last became faint whispers…and finally subsided into silence.
