Playing Hide and Seek

When I pulled out one end of the couch, Freckles ran to the other end. I stepped behind the couch and pushed it forward. She remained uncovered for only a second before she scooted into hiding again. At this rate I could move the couch across the room and she’d stay undercover all the way. I knelt down and saw her at the front of the couch. She was breathing hard, and I knew she was scared, so I tried talking soothingly to her. I extended my hand, but she kept scooting back out of my reach. I decided to survey the damage to the carpet and give her time to calm down.

Was she breathing hard from fear, or was she laughing at you?

Looking back at it now with new perspective, I would say that she was probably laughing (or at least giggling slightly!)
