Hatchling

Description

A hatchling might seem like a weird childhood terror, but I've been haunted by them ever since I and a group of my friends mistakenly tried to help a baby bird by "hatching" it from an egg we found on the ground. Naturally, all that happened was that the bird inside died. The horrifying way it looked to me (I had expected to see a lively miniature Robin, not a twitching pink thing with blind bulbs for eyes) and the sick realization that we had just caused a creature to die, branded itself into me. More than 20 years later, I still remember the scene...and my nightmares...clearly.
