Author's Notes:
Written for Challenge 338: Harmless at dw100.

Summary: This isn’t what Clara would call ‘harmless’.

“Ow! It bit me!” Clara exclaimed, backing away from the fuzzy creature she’d been petting, blood seeping from a couple of puncture wounds in her hand.

“Just a little nip; nothing to worry about.”

Why Cara had expected any concern from this new version of her friend she couldn’t imagine; still, it smarted as much as the bite did. “Easy for you to say! You’re not the one who got bitten.”

“They’re harmless. Mostly.”


“Might give you a bit of a rash for a week or two.”

Greenish spots were already spreading up Clara’s arm. “Thanks for the warning.”
