part 319.1 of a novel: 2am

Sometimes when it is 2am and I am walking down a dark street the thing I am most afraid of is seeing a rat with a skunk strapped to its back. I’ve walked down various streets before. Sometimes I see rats. Other times I see skunks. These both scare me. The thing that would scare me the most though would be seeing a rat combined with a skunk. Then the rat could jump on your neck and gnaw at your face and the skunk could spray itself into the wounds.
