Drabble: Raymond’s Battle – by Tiffany McCarroll

by specklit

“Tonight,” Raymond proclaimed to his battalion of dust bunnies, “We will have victory!” His army of grey clumps roared their battle cry in the darkness under Raymond’s bed. But then the thumps interrupted the morale, shaking the floor. Heart thudding, Raymond flicked the flashlight on. The monster’s scaly feet tapped impatiently on the floor beside the bed.

“Forward!” Raymond commanded, ushering the attack.

The dust bunnies stampeded from under the bed against the beast in the dark, making it howl as it crashed backward on the floor. There the little sneeze-inducing warriors feasted until Raymond’s worst nightmare was no more.

Author’s Note: There’s nothing to fear in the dark so long as you haven’t vacuumed.
