From "The Survival of Marvin Baines" by Michael Meyer

Marvin Baines felt happy. He was smiling. And he walked fast.He always walked fast when he was happy. He couldn’t help it. Ever since he was a little kid. He swung his arms back and forth and whistled. He whistled “You Are My Sunshine.” He liked the song. Then he quickly switched to “Don’t Fence Me In.” Something he believed in fully.

Marvin Baines walked right across the cement patio and stopped onto the grass.

“Watch it, buddy!”

Baines turned to see who was talking to him. No one was in sight.

“Careful now.”

Baines looked again. Still there was no one around him.
