Pet Peeve

It began as a mild stirring, a rustle barely audible, the letting out of a gentle breath. The hypnotic rhythm gathered momentum turning into a rumbling, getting louder and louder. Finally the big ones came starting somewhere deep, complete with flaring nostrils and quaking mouth.
Exasperated, she picked her pillow and walked to the couch.
