A Grim Dance has Begun...

By Guest, in News


“Ah,” the bandaged man spoke more, it seemed, to himself than Devlin, “two of you, better in some ways, worse in others.”

Devlin almost laughed aloud when he heard Marty muttering as the big longshoreman barged his way onto the scene from the warehouse that backed on to the yard. Devlin’s relief was short-lived, though, as the bandaged man reached inside his coat with a gloved hand.

Devlin clumsily snatched up the scattergun and brought its double-barreled snout to bear on the stranger, but instead of looking down the barrel of a pistol as he had feared, the bandaged man was holding a strange ochre colored stick in his gloved hand. No, not a stick, but a flute–a strange, uneven flute that looked for all the world as if it was made out of honeycomb.

Confused and uncertain, Devlin could only watch as the man seemed oblivious to Marty’s hulking form reaching out to grab him from behind. The bandaged man put the strange flute to his lips, and Devlin knew with a terrible, crushing certainty that he should have fired when he had the chance. He hadn’t pulled the scattergun’s trigger, and now he was done, just done.
