Dead Rite chapter 170.06


“Toast?” The woman looked at the two slices of Farmhouse White. “How have you cut the bread so neatly?”

“It comes like that.” Lucy trotted toward the toaster. “I can't get the toaster to work. There's something wrong with it.”

“What is this toaster?” She picked it up to examine. “Four mouths but no eyes? Why is its tail attached to the wall?”

“That's the power cord, silly. That's how it works. What sort of an angel are you if you don't know about toasters?”

Her eyes flickered. “Angel? I am no angel, child.” She put the toaster down and began opening cupboards. There is a vast amount of food here. I will make you something wholesome.”

“What are you? The bean queen?” Lucy picked up the bread again. “I want boiled egg and soldiers.”
