#100wcgu #154 – noises

The prompt this week was ‘…please let me sleep…’

***

‘Oh no’, she thought, as she rolled over and pulled the duvet over her head. The dogs were barking to be let out and the children were tearing up and down the stairs with the elegance of elephants. She tried to muffle the sound, but it was no good.
‘Please let me sleep, is that too much to ask?’ she said out loud to no one in particular. It didn’t help that the neighbours on the other side had had one of their regular 3am parties. The next thing she heard was the dad next door shouting at the kids that they were going to be late.
Silence returned. What bliss.
