A creaking sound broke the silence
“What was that?” Dee hissed gripping Ryo’s forearm so hard it was going to leave bruises.
“Ow! Let go, Dee. It’s just the foundations settling; it’s an old building. Go to sleep.”
Dee released his lover’s arm, but moments later clutched at him again as a rattling, clanking sound echoed around them.
“It’s only the pipes, Dee.” Ryo prised his partner’s fingers loose. “Relax.”
Dee tried, he really did, but then there was a thumping sound and more creaking.
“One of the guests coming upstairs.”
Then an eerie howling.
“Just the wind.”
“Why’d we have to stay somewhere so old? It’s gotta be haunted,” Dee muttered.
“It’s more atmospheric. Big hotel chains are all the same, you could be anywhere in the world. This place has character. Now please let me get some sleep.”
“Sorry.” Dee lay back down.
He was drifting off when there was a soft bump. Dee froze, straining his ears, then something jumped on him and he sat bolt upright with a yell. Beside him, Ryo turned the bedside light on.
Bright green eyes blinked back at Dee.
Ryo laughed. “Surely you’re not scared of the hotel’s cat!”
