Bats! – A 100 Word Story

Yes, it’s that time again. The topic over at the Weekly Challenge was Bats!, so make sure to stop by there and vote for my story! The background music is from NIN’s Ghosts album, and the sound effects are from the Freesound project. The audio may be NSFW. If the player below is borked, you can download the audio here.

The church looked down at the ranch home in the next lot. “Excuse you.”

The house blushed, the sounds of copulating echoing from inside. “Human infestation,” it said. “It happens.”

“Balderdash!” said the church, raising its voice above the moans from next door. “They are sent by God to afflict the wicked!”

“You’re nuts!” said the house. The church scoffed, its humans raising their voices in praise and song.

When night came, a black cloud came close – bats flying back to their church steeple home. The house giggled to itself.

“I knew you had bats in your belfry,” it said.
