But suddenly, she heard something. A raspy, throaty voice that sounded possessed. From my bed she heard Gollum’s voice. It whispered “My precious” like a hiss in the air, then silence.
Apparently I can talk like Gollum in my sleep. Amazingly, she didn’t move out immediately, though I do think she needed to change her sheets afterwards.
If I’m honest, I, too, would fall into a death chasm rather than do a pull-up.
