Wearing a tan coat billowing in the wind like a sail, she strode toward us in heavy boots. As she neared I could see that she was very tall with hair the color of the beach sand near our house, wound tightly into a long pony tail.
Shifting his rifle, Patrick moved in front of us, as if to protect us from the woman.

Silencing him with a wave of her hand, she sighed impatiently and motioned us to follow her inside. I almost started to laugh at the expression on Patrick's face, but one look from Father sucked the joy from my mouth. I stuck my tongue out at his back as I followed him up the stairs. I wished Mother had seen, but she clambered up behind Father, reaching a pale hand for the back of his jacket.
