I was out doing my ‘stuff’.
When I had to pause and really listen
“MINDY!!! MINDY It is getting dark! You need to come in now!” Mom called from a long way off.

So, on I went.
Here and there and just everywhere I could think of.
It was getting dark.
Even DARK! But I didn’t care. There was so much to do out here and I wanted to do it.
I was just heading around the Butler Bins, where Dad stores grain, when
I turned as fast as I could and ducked UNDER the feed grinder, then slithered my way past the tractor shed.

I looked back… so far so good.

He came from down the long-lane to the house, dashing past the chicken house and right on through the farm YARD!

It sounded like Freddy was leading them away.
OH, FREDDY THANK YOU SO MUCH! I mentally yelled.
Right at the moment, the door opened and I dashed into the house.
That was close!
