100 word challenge by Amelia

Lying in bed with the lights dimmed I began to hear the poem I had been practicing being repeated.  The sound was coming from Mitten one of my toys snuggled next to me in bed. I started to talk back to her in Ukrainian, “тепер мусему спати іти бо завтра нам треба рано ставати бо мусему до школи іти,” then the door creaked open and my sister stood in the doorway, “who are you talking to?” she asked “No one,” I said.  Mitten winked at me as my sister left the room.  It was our little secret forever. Mittens smiled.
