This froke me out

I slept last night at Wilderstead. I was awakened at quarter till five this morning by an unearthly cry. It seemed close at hand, but that doesn't mean much in the holler, where sounds travel as they do. I couldn’t figure out what it was; bird, mammal, human – I’ve never heard such a sound. Of course, since it woke me up, I can’t say with certainty that I heard it correctly – or even if I really heard it.

I went outside. The full moon was streaming through the trees, but everything was quiet. A few dogs were barking down the road, still. Maybe they heard whatever it was and it got them started.
