Little Bat

It was at dusk and all the villagers were returning home from work. A young woman who was about twenty-five years old was walking past an old dead tree. Suddenly, down from the sky fell a black bat. He crashed through the dead branches of the tree and landed in the woman’s arms.

“Oh my…! What have we here…?” the woman asked, looking at the little bat.

The bat had a broken wing and was bleeding. He was scared of the woman and tried to get away, but couldn’t. He fainted in her arms.

“Don’t worry little thing… I’ll take care of you…” she said and carried him to her home.

When she arrived home, she placed the little bat on a pillow and went to bed. The next morning, instead of going to work, she spent time trying to heal the little thing. It wasn’t until that night that the bat woke up.

“Where am I…?” he asked, looking around.

He found his wing to be bandaged. The woman entered the room.

“Did you just speak…?” she asked.

“Yeah, of course I did… I’ve been able to since I was very young…” he said.

He transformed, revealing himself to be a vampire. The cast magically changed to fit his arm.

“You’re a vampire? I didn’t know… I just assumed you were a regular bat…” the woman said.

“Of course you didn’t help me out of genuine concern… You just did it because you thought I was a regular bat… You’re a human, I’m a monster, and humans hate monsters…” he said.

“No, I really was concerned… What exactly happened?” the woman asked.

“I was flying by and some human caught me and hit me with a rake… I was injured so I tried to fly home, but I didn’t make it…” he said, looking down.

“I’m sorry… Do you have a name?” the woman asked.

“Not really… People just call me, That Bat,” he said.

“Well… I think you should have a proper name…” the woman said.

“I never found in necessary. I don’t talk to people much, mostly because humans only try to kill me usually and my family is gone…” he said.

“How does Drac sound?” the woman asked.

“As a name?” he asked, “I guess I could go with that.”

“You look a bit too young to be on your own, how would you like for me to look after you?” the woman asked.

“Look after me? You…? But you’re a human… It’s highly likely that I’ll out-live you big time…” Drac said.

“Can’t I at least try? Perhaps I could be of help…” she said.

“Alright, I’ll let you be my mother…” Drac said.

“It’s getting late, for me at least…” the woman said.

“I just woke up… I don’t see how this will work…” Drac said, sighing.

“We’ll make it work…” she said, yawning and going to her bedroom.

While his new mother was sleeping, young Drac snuck out of his home. He sat on the porch step and stared up into the starry sky. The moon was full and seemed to be watching him. He heard a wolf howling in the distance.

“I bet that wolf is lonely just like I…” Drac said, “But at least I now know there is one person in this world that I can depend on…”

A wind blew and ruffled his smooth black hair, carrying a faint scent of pine trees from the woods.

“Well… I think I’ll just wander a bit while I’m waiting for mother to wake up…” Drac said standing and walking away into the shadows.

He wandered far from home, going at quite a quick pace. The night was still fresh so he had plenty of time to return to the house. He entered the nearby woods, accidentally stepping on a stick. It snapped and echoed. He stopped walking and looked around to make sure nobody would attack him. After looking around, he continued walking.

A thick fog rolled over in the woods making it harder to see. In a flash, a medium sized furry creature shot out of the darkness and jumped on him.

“Ow! My arm!” cried Drac.

“What are you doing here?!” the creature asked, growling.

“I don’t mean any harm! Uh, my name is Drac…” Drac said, gulping nervously.

“Drac?” the creature asked, “Are you sure you don’t mean Dracula?” the creature asked.

“That’s some other vampire! I’m just Drac!” Drac yelled, pushing the creature off with his non-broken arm.

“Oh, sorry… My name is Wolf,” the creature said.

“Do you live here?” Drac asked.

“Well… Not exactly, I just got lost…” Wolf said.

“It’s not safe here… There is a human village just a few miles up that way,” Drac said, pointing back the direction he came from.

“Humans?” asked Wolf, drooling, “Humans don’t trouble me…”

“How old are you…?”
 Drac asked.

“Puppy aged,” Wolf said, not stating his actual age.

“You’re foolish… You see this broken arm? A human did this to me…” Drac said.

“Mmm… And what did you do…?” Wolf asked.

“I flew away…” Drac said.

“You’re scared of humans…?” Wolf asked.

“Yes…” Drac said, “Well… There is one good one…”

“Hmmm… I’m itchy, can you scratch my belly?” Wolf asked.

“Are you kidding me?!” Drac asked.

“No… Sorry…” Wolf said.

Wolf rolled over onto his back. Drac sighed and scratched his belly for him.

“There, now don’t ask again…” Drac said.

He then turned and looked into the sky.

“I have to get home…” Drac said.

“I can take you!” Wolf said, wagging his tail.

“No! I can’t trust you!” Drac said.

“What? You trusted me enough to know I wouldn’t bite you if you scratched my belly…” Wolf said, making a cute face.

“I don’t want you hurting my mother is all…” Drac said, sighing.

“Your mother?” asked Wolf, “Wait, your mother is a vampire, right…?”

“No… She’s human…” Drac said, turning and leaving.

“Wait! That can’t work! Humans do everything in the morning!” Wolf called out.

“She said it would work out… And I believe her!” Drac said.

“You will come back though… right?” Wolf asked.

“Maybe…” Drac said.

“Watch your cape! It’s going to get dirty!” Wolf cried out.

Drac sighed and exited the woods. He wandered back home and made it before sunrise. At home, he turned into a bat and snuggled into his pillow.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
