I THINK of more than children. I have higher thoughts, like anyone else. I wonder who made me, why I am here; I am subject to the usual range of pointless speculation. I am not an utter beast, no matter the lies that are spread against me.
But hush now. What's that twitching in the grass? Do you hear? The rustle of one blade against another, the beating of a tiny heart. Easy, easy. Not a sound! Its whiskers trail in the dirt. Fleas dance on its hide. What sound escapes me, except that of the moonlight's fall on the forest floor? And if I were to apply all my senses, perhaps I could hear that as well.
