Flash Fiction Friday: A Cry in the Night

The baby was crying again.

Sarah rolled over with a groan. Her husband, Tom, was gone from bed. Probably getting a midnight snack. With a yawn, she got up and padded down the hall.

She peeked into the nursery. A figure stood over the crib and the baby cooed happily. Tom had gotten him. Good. 

Sarah climbed back into her bed. Tom exited their adjoining bathroom with a stretch.

“You were in the bathroom?” she said, her brow pulled tight.

“Yeah.” He shrugged.

“Then who’s in–”

A chill ran down Sarah’s spine. The baby had fallen silent.
