During the day I learned how to use a shotgun. That night I went caving with wererats.
Uh, I thought that you were going through tunnels? Are there caves under St. Louis? I looked it up: there were, but at some point after the sixties the local council filled most of them with concrete. So, Anita, Edward and the wererats are able to magically walk through concrete. Nice power. Anita whines about how she was forbidden from watching the wererats change into… well, wererats.
I had never wanted to see so badly in my life. It couldn’t be so horrible. Could it?
Anita, they are literally changing from humans into rat-humans. I imagine that is absolutely horrendous. Let Mitchell explain why turning into an animal is nasty and painful:
Yes, I imagine it do be horrible. So quit your belly aching.
She then complains that the cave is dry. The rats don’t counter that it’s a miracle they are even able to walk through caves full of concrete. After two hours they get to Nikky’s lair. The ratking won’t accept thanks and goes off to perform more miracles, like walking on water and healing leprosy. Edward asks if Anita is okay with this, seeing as this was where Phillip died. It seems they don’t remember what I read, and about how Anita thought he was absolutely disgusting. She cares now, so that makes it all right.
We were here. This was it. I could sense my heart in my throat.
Are you ever going to catch Zachary?
