Angus approaches the bed and carefully sits himself on the end, perched like a bird ready to flee. In his hands is a slim novel. “Sorry to wake you, sirs,” he says, voice quiet. “I, um, heard the thunderstorm, and sometimes, when I was younger - when I was little my parents and I would, uh, wait them out together, and I was wondering if it would be okay if I, um, stayed in here for a little while, just until I can sleep again? It won’t be long! I’ll be out of your hairs soon, I promise.”
Kravitz listens to his story carefully. It’s a lie, of course; Angus’s parents never cared enough to allow their child in their bed for comfort. One day, he hopes, Angus will not feel the need to make up traditions they all know did not exist.
“’Course, bubbeleh,” says Taako, patting the space between himself and Kravitz. “Hop on over, little ribbit. Got room in this bed enough for three.”
