The Sneak

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Sneaking through the bushes that were below her bedroom window to the tree that was there, Lindsey scratched herself numerous times. Every time she did this she wondered if her parents had done this on purpose to keep her from sneaking out. It hasn’t stopped her yet, but it wasn’t easy.

As she stepped over the windowsill and into her room the light flipped on and her parents said, “Look what the cat dragged in.”

The tree was gone the next day.
