Dead Rite chapter 170.08

“We don't have any chickens.” Lucy pointed toward the fridge. “There are eggs in there.”

“What happened to the chickens?” The woman looked out of the window across the stable yard. “And the horses? And where is the oven?”

“We don't have any horsies either. Daddy said he'd get me one when I'm bigger.”

“You are the master's child?”

“Masters? I don't think so. Who are the Masters? Did they used to live here?”

The woman ignored the question, still staring across the stable yard. She pointed at her dad's van. “Why do you have a wagon if you have no horses?”

“A wagon?” Lucy laughed. “That's dad's van. It doesn't need horses. It has an engine.”
