We were nestled all snug in our beds (no visions of dancing sugarplums) when the telephone rang.

My mobile was off.

Rick's mobile was off.

It wasn't coming from J's room.

It wasn't coming from Son Number 2's room on the upper level.

We went back to bed, drifted off.

The phone rang.

Where oh where?

Standing in the hallway it seemed to come from downstairs.

For some reason, the alarm on the downstairs phone was ringing.
