Hunger Games

It was past midnight. They stealthily approached her from opposite directions. One of them was lean and menacing; the other was dark and stodgy. She however, seemed blissfully unaware of the dangers lurking so close to her.

Haste getting the better of them, the partners in crime closed in on their first victim of the night a little too quickly. She sensed something amiss. Her reflexes kicked in and she was too quick for them to handle. They stood stumped as they watched their dinner fly away.

The roach and the lizard were back to being strangers in the night.
