It was a clear starry night and the full moon shined through the window as Slim laid alone in the bunkhouse. when slim was alone he would always play solitaire till he was tired. As he was shuffling he heard a ruckus outside and he was startled . slim was thinking to himself what was that , was it a coyote , was it a black bear . he was just so frightened and scared. he hears the wooden latch from the door unlock and he stands up quick ready for anything. he sees curly's wife holding a candle walking through the door. slim sighs in relief and sits back down while staring at her with question
slims asks "what are you doing here you gave me a fright . she replies "im sorry I was just walking around exploring , honestly I didn't think any one was here. he replies " well here alone as you can see "
