AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS x HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA
Forty-six bats dangle from the ceiling of Dr. Singh’s dental office. Forty-six opportunities for a bat-astrophe.
I gulp. If anyone notices, I’m doomed.
But the seven people in the waiting room all stare zombie-like at their phone screens, ignoring the bats. I owe my life to whoever invented phones, seriously.
Zooooom crinkle crinkle crinkle.
I gasp. A brown blur zips onto the table and licks a fly off Merrilee Jamieson’s face on CosmoGirl. I turn wide-eyed to Mom, who looks just as horrified. She squeezes my arm and I know she’s thinking the same thing.
No one saw that, RIGHT?
I bite my lip and scan the waiting room. A teen puts away her phone, looks around, frowns. Meanwhile the bat perches on that magazine, chewing thoughtfully on his fly. I tap my knees and give him the biggest nervous side-eye. C’mon Chewy, go back go back go back.
Here’s the thing: bats don’t let anybody boss them around, not even vampires.
Chewy doesn’t move. Now I don’t understand bat, but I swear he’s like, Naaaaah, I gotta finish my meal.
Geez, how long does it take to chew up a fly?
The teen gets up from her seat. I suck in a breath.
This is it. She’s going to report the bat infestation.
