Starfall

Last night I had my laptop open on the kitchen table. Its screensaver was active, showing a starfield whizzing by.

“Look!” Eli said. “Stars! But where’s the moon?”

“It’s not on there,” I told him.

He reached out and pressed a key. The starfield vanished. “Eli, no!” I said. “No touching dad’s computer!” Eli scampered out of the kitchen.

A minute later he came back to the table where Misty and I were sitting. “I hid the stars and you’ll never find them. Heh, heh, heh.” Then he ran again.
