Mabel was in the garden when she heard something scuffling around in the plants. Abandoning her book, she got up and found… well…

Well, she didn’t know what it was. It was a creature of some sort, ugly as sin. It was the size of a cat, with six legs and two leathery wings sprouting from the shoulder blades. Mabel crouched down and offered the creature her hand, and it rubbed itself against her, its skin rough and scaly.

Mabel was compelled to carry the creature into her home, and it left the next morning, blood dripping from its mouth.
