Fall

A quiet gust of wind, rustled through the night, sending leaves fluttering from the trees, and causing their branches to sway, ever so softly. Across the darkness it raced, darting between houses and cars, until it reached an open window, still lit, and darted in. All around the room the cool rush of wind crept, until finally reaching the source of light. A small computer monitor flickered in the darkness, and the one in front of it, shivered, caught by the sudden gust of cool wind, and wished silently for a small coat, to cover their exposed arms with. A small orange cat purred, contentedly curled up on its own personal heating pad, a human's lap, while another slept at it's feet, silently cursing the one who had gotten the warm place in the room.
