Hugo was as excited as Bruce. As the months wore on and summer slowly turned to autumn before descending toward winter, Jane glowed with excitement. Her maternal instincts kicked in as she prepared f...or the birth of their child.
Hugo said she was nesting, slowly tweaking small aspects of the cabin for the arrival of the baby, knitting baby clothes, converting a wooden crate into a crib and clearing out any musty old bedding. Being pregnant, Jane couldn't help out as much on the farm as she once had, putting the burden of preparing for the snow drifts on Bruce.
The past year had been kind. The thick deciduous trees bordering the farm to the north had held the monsters at bay during summer, but with their leaves covering the ground, Bruce had to reinforce the berms and spike pits protecting his fields before winter set in.
A mountain lion had been stalking deer nearby, spraying to mark its territory, leaving the smell of musk drifting across the back plots near the forest.
Bruce was worried the massive beast would find a way through the pits, over the berms and approach the farm buildings.
