Drabble: Infestation


Something was scratching in the walls. I tried to ignore it, to pay attention to the man from the county, but I kept coming back to it, wondering how they’d gotten back in. I thought I’d closed up all the holes they got in through before.

“Have you had any more episodes?”

“What?” I asked, my attention snapping back to the conversation at hand.

“Have the new medications helped?”

“Oh, yeah, I’m fine.” I wanted to get this over with so I could go find where they were getting in.

A tiny green hand probed testingly through the furnace register.
