linda’s #SoCS (10-minute SoC) – prompt: 3-letter word.
Linda’s prompt (See here for more info) for SoCS (for Stream of Consciousness Saturday) is “3-letter word.” Start your post with any 3-letter word. Bonus points if you end with one too.
The bat was sat upon the mat.
”Whatever you is, you ain’t no cat, bat!” remarked Alice, with all the caring love in her voice that any bat-mother could display.
”We got no need for a batty bat!” her little joke.
The bat pricked up it’s ears and tried to understand the words. No, just the sound of the human’s voice with no actual level of comprehension.
The bat sat for a while longer, before deciding that sitting upright was a bit of a chore.
’I shall go and hang from the ceiling once more – I enjoyed that the last time I tried it.’
The bat had been experimenting with its environment. Learning by watching its bat-mother was not going that well; walking on two-legs, sitting upright, and talking in that deep and gruff manner weren’t natural for the bat – and then there was the diet.
Bat was sure that cheese and pickle sandwiches* were very nice, if you liked cheese… and pickle.
The bat upon the mat thought a lot about that.
*That was as far as I got in my 10-minutes.
