Lighting the torch, he steps into the cave. The first thing he noticed was the unpleasant smell. Years of infestation by a bat colony and their leavings known as guano, was so overpowering, his eyes started to water. But it was the only thing she asked of him, and he did love her so, what could he do?
Joe looked up, seeing the bats, hoping not to disturb them. He got his gear from outside the cave, a shovel and wheelbarrow. Her garden would be especially green this year. He just hoped she didn’t think guano tea was for drinking.
