Talking to the Heater
Buddy: What are you doing back there, Micah?
Micah: Just hanging out.
Buddy: Any particular reason?
Micah: No. Just dark and quiet.
Buddy: Does it have anything to do with the thunder and lightning storm we're having?
Micah: Maybe. Would you think less of me if it does?
Buddy: No, not really. We all fear something.
Micah: What do you fear?
Buddy: Because she turns up everywhere with that camera.
Micah: You'd better go now. I hear her coming and you'll give away my hiding place.
Buddy: She'll never think to look for you there.
Jan: Who are you talking to, Buddy?
Buddy: The heater. I thought I heard it crying but it was just my imagination.
