Flash in the Pan

howling wolfSomewhere in the distance a wolf bayed. With a wry smile she thought, Calling to his mate.

The television droned softly, a commercial for engagement rings. She set out the ingredients for dinner.  As she chopped the vegetables, the show resumed. The wedding would surely cause more drama for the characters.

She set a glass of wine on the end table and picked up her book, eighth in the romance series. After a few chapters and one refill, she snapped off the lamp.

Her robe draped over a chair. The cool sheets felt good against her bare legs when she stretched out to set the alarm clock.

She heard the wolf again. When he nuzzled her neck, she awoke confused by the dream. She lifted her head and spied pups sleeping nearby in a pile.

She wondered, With so many in their pack, how are they ever lonely?
