Dead Rite chapter 170.05

“Your dad?” The woman frowned. “Who is your dad?”

“He owns the manor.” Lucy made an expansive gesture with her arms, meant to convey the entirety of the property. “He's the most important man in Laverstone.”

“Is he indeed.” The woman gave a bark of laughter, her eyes flaring orange, then red for a moment. Lucy wasn't scared. “What is his name, girl?”

“Lucy. I told you my name was Lucy.” She frowned. There had been a question, hadn't there? Oh yes. “Harold. My dad's name is Harold Waterman.”

“I do not know this man.” She turned a slow circle. “Where am I?”

“You're in our house.” Lucy pressed two slices of bread into her hands. “Will you make me some toast, please?”
