Shhh! I'm hiding. Don't notice me. Don't look at me. It's ok if you whisper, but pretend you're watching the ivy grow or... be irritated at that crow! Don't look at me. I'm hiding.

Why am I hiding? you ask. Well, I don't remember. I remember creeping quietly away from something--a dog maybe, or my mom. I remember covering myself in ivy and standing very very still. And I'm still here.

I think I'll stay here a while longer. No, don't you worry about me. No! Shhhh! Someone's coming. Go study that bug on a log! Please, leave me alone. I'm hiding!
