Sentence: “CREEEeee-k”. Bethany stirred, unable to sleep with the nocturnacoustics scattering in her small room of the rooming house. The house was over 100 years old! Of course it would generate it’s own nighttime clamour, what with it’s original plumbing, wood flooring and coal furnace. She’d have to get earplugs.
