Mating Right

“Hey, Bat Boy, you’re in my territory. Out!”

“No way, Bat Kid, my girlfriend is coming here to look for me. Off you go.”

“Nonsense, Bat Boy. Did you see the mark I left last year? I have been living here for the last 20 years. You’re the invader.”

“Who cares?” He whacked Bat Kid left and right, left and right.

Bat Boy wasted in no time to smack him back faster and faster.

They banged each other fiercely until their wings got punched and fingers were broken.

They were lucky to be rescued by the Bat World Sanctuary.
