Going Batty
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     Sandy loved the evening. The sun was going down, it was starting to get dark, and the bats were coming out.
 
2     Like small dark shadows, they would flit through the air. Then they would perform acrobatics of twists and turns that would leave her dizzy just watching them.
 
3     Many of Sandy's friends thought she was crazy. Nobody liked bats. They were creepy, weird, flying mice. They could bite you and make you sick, and they'd get tangled in your hair. Sandy was just plain batty.
 
4     Sandy would just sigh. She'd tried telling them the truth, but they didn't want to hear it. Some of the girls liked to pretend to be scared. How silly, thought Sandy.
 
5     She remembered a time when she stayed overnight at her grandparents' house. She'd forgotten to close the overhead garage door, and it was left open all night.
