Judd sucked the life out of his cigarette and flicked the butt off the porch. He shook his fist at the waning sun. “Trust you to leave ‘till all the trouble’s done.”
He peered into the gloomy shadows of trees and shrubs. “They’re out there somewheres and they’ll be comin’ again with their wailin’ and hollerin’.”
Inside the house, he bolted the door. “There won’t be no sleepin’ tonight.”
He pulled a tabby cat onto his lap. “Don’t worry, I won’t let them get’cha.” Then under his breath, he muttered, “Should have got you spayed when I had the chance.”
