Ben was sleeping out in the yard, the green grass tickling his fur. Suddenly, his head shot up as something sharp came down on his tail. "HELP!" he helped. He slowly turned around to see that it was only a rat. "Go away, stupid rat!" he scolded. He lunged and bit the rat, shaking it off his tail and tossing it to the side. As he looked around, he saw pairs of beady eyes staring down at him. The rats were all around him. They swarmed into the yard, trapping him ion the fences, pushing him down, clawing, tearing at him.
His screech echoed throughout the neighborhood.
