Dead Rite chapter 170.09


“Like a thresher?” Her mouth moved as if she was talking silently. “Where does the coal go?”

“Um...” Lucy was unsure of the details of how a car actually worked but was fairly certain it didn't involve coal. Her gran had a coal fire and it smelled completely different. She was fairly sure a car didn't run on coal fires. “I think they crush the coal into tiny bits and put it in with a pipe.”

“Whatever will they think of next?” The woman turned away from the window. “So where is your fire, then?”

“We don't have one.” Lucy pointed at the door to the main house. “There are fireplaces but we don't really use those rooms.”

“Then how do you bake this bread?”
