another living soul

As my car swung into the darkened parking lot, a movement just at the edge caught my eye.
It was very early morning.
I didn't expect to see another living soul.
Neither did the racoon.
Its expression and mine were identical.
Our eyes locked for an uncomfortable instant and then we both averted our gaze and headed in opposite directions.
Racoons aren't morning people either.
