The Witching Hour XII

Following on from Witching Hour I to XI, this all came out of the Thimbleful THursday prompt "The Witching Hour.";

The wards that woke Yvonne were meant for rabbits eating her garden, or for cats using the garden beds as a public litter tray. They were not designed for strange men who stood as close to the house as public land would let them, then chanted stuff and nonsense at her.

He wasn’t actually on her property and he wasn’t doing anything that would alarm or harm a passer-by, so Yvonne double-checked that house was locked up and that her protections were holding, then went back to bed. Morning would be time enough to see how she could tweak the garden wards to account for the likes of him.
