She is late to come home. She is jittery. She is quiet. When she is in, and not in bed, she sits on the window ledge and stares at the cows. She has never seen a cow. Tallie is scared of cows. Her sister* tillie is a different story. In the summers tillie is sometimes spotted taunting the cows and then running like mad. It’s a game she plays.

We are hopeing that tillie will look after her little sister and teach her to not be scared of these monsters. However, it is more likely that tillie creeps up behind tallie and whispers “mmmoooooooooo”.

*not really her sister
