///Hidden// thinks the Bat. //Hidden worlds, hidden words/Lost and found/Lost/And Found//
The Bat’s head jitters quickly. Thin fingers click against each other nervously.
///Found// thinks the Bat. //Stolen?/Difficult/Difficult thought//
The Bat walks slowly back and forth, hunkered over under the weight of brazen wings folded backwards. Quiet mutterings come from beneath its ragged cowl.
///Bat didn’t know// thinks the Bat. //Bat asked for secrets/Bat gives secrets/Bat gets coin/Always the same/Always/No trouble/ No trouble for Bat//
The Bat rubs its hands together, shakes its head.
///Bat not look for trouble// thinks the Bat. //Only lost secrets/Need home from sky colours/Bat gives/No trouble/No trouble//
