I had left the pillow in the paper bag on the first night. It was when I was about to hit the bed on the second night when I noticed that it was still in the bag.
I picked it up and took it to my bed.
As always, after switching off the light, I spent some time checking my social media accounts.
I must have fell asleep because I woke up with the whispering in my ear and the phone was on my chest.
The whispering in my ear was relentless and not very clear enough to understand.
I lay trying to decipher these whispers, as my initial impression was that I was overhearing someone speak from ouside my window.
But the minute I lifted my head off the pillow, the incessant whispers ceased.
It was then I realized it.
The pillow was whispering in my ear.
