"Bat-Like Creature" by Richard F. Yates (HF)


[Digitally manipulated photo of my cat, taken with my phone, with weird embellishments and curses.] It seemed to squeak or scream as it swooped out of the night sky---like a bat, but the size of a man... A NORMAL man, not a short, pear-shaped, grumpy man, like me. Close to six feet, covered in shadowy fur, and flapping enormous leathery wings, it must have been twenty or thirty feet above my head when I spotted it as I walked towards my car, and I panicked. I bent towards the ground and covered my head, a useless gesture had it wanted to abuse me, and almost instantly, the flapping sound was gone. I looked up into a clear, dark, night sky and found it free of horrors... ---Richard F. Yates (Holy Fool)
