Becker was woken abruptly from his snooze on the sofa. Still half asleep, it took him a moment to realise where the sound was coming from.
Sitting in front of the TV he’d left on when he fell asleep, the wolf cub was watching, fascinated. On screen, a choir was singing Christmas carols around a tree, and the cub howled along with them.
Taking the remote, Becker hit mute but the cub turned to him with such a pitiful expression that he sighed, turning the volume back up. The cub howled again: His neighbours were not going to be happy.
