So I was rewatching Of Rats and Men when I got to this scene…
Wait… Is that?
In the back room there and be heard cheerful laughter of a small child as she plays with a soft toy, gumming at it occasionally. Abigail is in her crib, her attention absorbed into her game unaware of me looking in at her smiling in amusement. I let out a soft sigh of happiness and contentment. I hear footsteps come towards the room and I turn slightly when I hear the door open.
