Chapter 10

Down the street, E-Z Dollar was having a sale on flashlights. The old standard plastic tube-style flashlight was on offer for a very reasonable $2.99 (plus tax, of course).

A more modern LED variant is available for $7.99.

No one knew it yet but in an apartment on the other side of town a feisty tabby cat was destroying a sofa and a green sweater.

In another part of Acraborn a small leaf pile had been ignited by a careless smoker passing by. It would soon flare up and burn the oldest house in town to the ground.
