    Around 8pm at this evening, I was sitting at my desk gaming in an SR group on my healer, when I heard a subtle rustle in the house. My house was built @ 1930 mind you, its a twin and adjoins with a pretty active family of five, so there's alot of "bumps in the night'. The wind was howling outside, and there's a few trees brushing against my house, so I easily dismissed the noise. The glad in our group aggroed a pat which chain aggroed about five mobs. Healing my ass off I heard the rustle again, but really didn't focus on it as I was trying deserately to keep my group alive. Needless to say, the glad apologized and bailed in the middle of the fight (his name is Thereaper...be warned), and we wiped.

    As we were licking our soul sickness, I was rezzin my group when suddenly a shadow flashed across the wall. Startled, I swiveled in my chair to see a large gray bat swoop down towards my head. It flew over me missing by only a few inches, and landed in the upper left corner of the room towards the ceiling. In a panic I typed "EMERGENCY AFK" in chat, and panned around the room for anything to arm myself with. Luckily not far from me was hanging my trusty battle-axe. I snatched it off the wall just as the bat flew around for another past, this time keeping his distance but landing on the door molding to the right of me about six foot away.

    Still too far for a melee attack, I slowly bent down and wrapped my head with a t-shirt (helm), to protect myself from the fiend possibly spreading its lice plague. With the beast still fortified in the molding of my door, I quietly crept within range. Wringing the studded handle of the axe in my hand, my heart raced as I stealthly made my way towards him.

    Once close enough I targeted my adversary and attacked! I swung my trusted axe and sliced the winged creature, hacking it across the back. The beast shrieked in pain, and took flight again flailing wildly. I jumped back defensively; however my strike had landed true, and its injuries were too severe for it too attack. Wounded heavily it bounced into the wall, and fell sprawling to the ground. Seeing my foe was now prone, my eyes widened with the oppertunity. I swung again at the stunned hellion, this time missing a vital area, but impaling its wing. I could feel the spike of the axe thud into the hardwood under the carpet, pinning it to the ground. The winged monster flailed about trying desperately to free itself.

    With my enemy paralyzed, I waltzed back over to my armory and pulled my long sword off the wall. Casually strolling back over, I raised my weapon above the subdued foe. With both hands clutching the hilt, I thrusted the point of the sword down on the beast driving it into his chest right below the neck. The steel blade slice throught its body with a crunch, and all movement ceased from its body. Leaning my sword against the wall, I remorsefully returned to my chair and typed "sry all, 2 more mins afk" and left to give my worthy foe a proper burial...tossing it in the snow in my back yard.
