“There was a shadow outside the curtained bedroom window. It looked distinctly like half a person. It was so clear. There was a head, a neck, shoulders. I saw the slump of the arms. A man and I stared at the shadow for some time, trying to understand what it was doing there. We were confident it was a person but who? There was no one else in the motel. We were alone. We could barely remember the last time someone came prowling across the dunes. The man and I were afraid to pull the curtain back.”
