Kevin was again working at the store on a late shift, stocking the shelves after even the janitorial team had gone home for the evening. It was a pretty normal night with pretty normal things going on for him to expericne. Such as the song stuck in his head that he couldn't help but hum under his breath.
His normal thoughts were cut short as a box of cereal a little ways down from the can she was stocking fell over. He didn't think much of it, things fell over all the time. The place was drafty and the other staff didn't normally take pride in their work. He planned on picking up the box once he got to that section, not like it was going anywhere. He went back to the cans but when he turned his back another box fell from a little ways closer to him. That was more conserning.
Kevin narrowed his eyes as he stepped closer to investigate the scene, praying that it was't a rat. He knew he would have to be the one to deal with it if it was indeed such a thing. But then... what else could it be, a stray cat? Please be a kitten...
It was not a kitten.
A strange light blue, small, rat-like creature with too many teeth to be... anything, jumped out from behind the cover of the boxes, and landed on Kevin's shoulder, biting down after letting out a shrill shriek so loud it made Kevin feel dizzy. The bite was much more painful though, and he threw himself against the opposing wall to get the odd thing off, which it then let out a pained hiss and ... poofed... a small light blue gem of sorts lay on the ground.
Kevin held his good hand to his bleeding shoulder and stared down at the gem with wide eyes. "What... What the hell!" Please tell me this store has security cameras or no one is going to believe me. Damn my arm hurts. He took a worried look at the wound, sighing in relief that it didn't appear to be too deep, though it did hurt like hell.
