“Move,” Lil said, shoving him aside. She closed her eyes tight. “Back up. Against the cliff, Lo.” I obeyed her, pressing my body to the pink sandstone, and watched with growing horror as a furry body formed, long and large as a semi-truck. Its jointed, fat, hairy legs clung to the side of the plateau. It’s huge, faceted eyes fixated on me. Its airplane-sized wings, bright rainbow colors with black framing, almost like stained glass, fluttered up a breeze that threatened to send me over the edge. A sunset moth. From Madagascar. About the size of a commercial jet liner. “Great, Lil,” I said weakly, as the giant, glittering moth climbed toward us. “Really?” “Meet Mr. Smiley. He’s going to let us ride him. Aren’t you, boy?” Lil patted a leg-segment as long as she was tall and ran her fingers through the hair that covered its body, gleaming with bright, iridescent colors. The wings were almost like a holographic image—every shade in the rainbow. Pre-order #Fireinthewall by clicking the link in my bio!
