James Bond is a spy, so if you're bonding with someone does that mean that you're spying with them? Anyway onto the flash fiction!
Bats And Vampires
Dracula's night had been a rocky one. He spent hours traveling and teleporting and couldn't find a single human isolated from civilization. That, and with modern technology, the vampire hunters managed to sneak black lights into their cellphones so he couldn't tell what humans could hit him with the powerful radiation of the Sun beyond the tolerance he had from what could be reflected from the Moon.
He needed blood. He resorted to his backup plan. His magic abilities with bats. Dracula transformed into his bat form and flew into a cave to meet with bats and speak with them. Using his powers over the animals he would convince them to help him attack a human as a herd so that he as an individual would not be targeted by the vampire hunters.
“Obey me, assist me,” Dracula psychically communicated to bats. “Help me get the blood of a human!”
The bats laughed a squeaky laugh. Dracula looked at them confused, hanging off the top of the cave just like them. The alpha bat responded, “Dude, we're fruit bats.”
Embarrassment and hunger from his mistake overtook Dracula until the Sun rose. He went to sleep and hoped the next night he'd be able to feed.
