Ned was just about to find out why he woke up with a mysterious yen for mosquitoes and gnats.

Okay so this is a bit strange, I admit. Last night I was sitting out on the porch at dusk, watching dozens of little brown bats swooping and diving after insects. I decided I would do something with a bat for this week’s prompt, Mysterious. Not wanting to do the obvious spooky haunted house or graveyard, I came up with this. Here is Ned, splashing some cold water on his face; he’s not quite awake yet, but he will be…very soon.

P.S. I’m a weirdo.
