When I was a little girl my mother would take my brother and me to the beach. She liked to show us things.
One time, she caught a small octopus in a tide pool and called us over to see it before it slipped away.
Another time, she poked a little hole in the sand, and in the darkness of the hole I saw tiny eyes glowing back at me.
"Those are sand bats," she said.
I often thought of the sand bats. I only saw them that one time. And when I asked my mother why we never saw them anymore, she looked at me funny.
"I think you must have dreamed that," she said.
