50-Day Bookish Challenge – Day 32

A little late today, but the day is not over yet! It was my second day at my new job and then I had night classes. Busy busy…

“They edged towards the shaking box that had just been delivered.” Should they open it?? You decide what happens next.

 Lyla glanced over at Jimmy, communicating silently with a lifted eyebrow. Jimmy shrugged and reached out to lift the lid off of the still shaking box. When he opened it, three black blurs erupted from the darkness and flew shrieking into the night. Jimmy screamed while Lyla stepped back to get a better look at the small, furry creatures as they quickly disappeared from view. “Ryan did good this year.”

“Bats. Why bats? I hate bats,” Jimmy mumbled to himself as he tossed the lid of the box on the floor.

“That’s exactly why,” Lyla explained simply.

Jimmy huffed in irritation before glaring across the street, eyes narrowing further when he heard  the distant sound of laughter.

It’s Halloween time, so why not bats?! xD I dunno. That’s all I got, folks.
