"We got some!" Ivan pokes his head out the hayloft and holds the bucket up victoriously to his cousin Petro.
A motley clan of barn cats meow and whine as they wrap themselves around Petro's skinny legs. Petro wheezes from the dust and hay. Ivan scrambles down the makeshift ladder with one hand, the bucket clanking at his side. He jumps the last rungs to the ground and with his free hand steadies the chipped crock plate that acts as a lid.
