She stood in the dark hallway clutching her little lamb. Her eyes wide open, nightgown falling just below her little knees. She wanted to go on down the hall and in to find her mama but she could not. She stood frozen to the spot hoping that it would not see her. She fingered the little silk blanket close to her chest and wondered if she should go back to her room. She stared down the hall. She wanted to call for her mama but she was so very afraid. What if it heard her and came running to eat her? She just didn’t know what to do so she stood there, crying softly and hoping the rumbling lion would quit making all that noise down the hall where Mama and Papa slept so she could get into bed with them.
