A Bat Circling In The Sky

I was asleep in bed and I could hear every one scrambling around and I sat up to see what was going on. My aunt and my grandmother were running in circles. My grandmother was being very loud as she yelled get the umbrella and then get Bernie.

Bernie was my uncle and he was dead asleep in the next room. What is going on I asked? My aunt answered me by saying don’t move Janet just stay right there.  I could hear the fear in her voice and I huddled closer to my pillow. I did not move. There was more noise as my uncle came out of his room.

Once more I asked what is going on? My aunt finally answered me. We saw a bat circling in the sky earlier and it came thru the attic window. Someone had left it open and there was going to be a price to pay. I knew it wasn’t me so I snuggled into my pillow once more.

There was so much commotion going on I couldn’t stand too much more I thought as I sat up in bed. Finally I heard we got it, we actually got it my uncle Bernie yelled. You could hear him running down the stairs. The front door opened and you could hear him yelling at the bat as he opened up the umbrella and let it loose.

I laid there and listened, kind of laughed and then rolled over and went back to sleep.
