Ah well, no harm done. I went back to my chores. From time to time, I listened at her door; she remained as quiet as a mouse. As the hours went by, I began to feel anxious. It was getting dark, and still there was no sign of Kenny. When eventually Kathryn knocked on the door, asking to use the crapper, the bathroom actually, my nerves were worn to a frazzle.
