THE DEAD GAME -- DAY 195



They were trapped in the town hall with flying creatures circling above them. Who was going to save them now? 

   Swarms of flying creatures crashed through the glass. They were circling above them. They were big, black, and furry. Oh, God! Mike shivered. They were bats! No, something was off about them. They were much too big to be bats!
     As the creatures swooped down toward them, Mike saw that they had human faces. Human faces on big furry bodies. It was as if the gates of hell had opened up and released the worst creatures into their world. They continued to fly down at them, over and over again, with their sharp claws extended, grabbing at them.
     “Run! I’ll vanquish her again!” yelled the Father.
     Mike grimaced. We are all doomed if we have to rely on the Father and his unreliable spells.
     Todd took Linda’s hand and pulled her behind him to the closed door at the back of the room. She looked over her shoulder, yelling for everyone to follow them. They all began to follow, except for David, who said, “We can’t leave the priest behind.”
     Louise tugged on his arm. “We must leave! He’s trying to save everyone! Let him be a hero! This way some of us could make it out alive!”
     David relinquished his tough stance and followed Louise out of the burning room. Mike sneered to himself—the cowardly lion had let go of his tail for a few seconds and had almost appeared heroic; but of course, he ended up following his bossy girlfriend to safety.
