Dead Rite chapter 171,06


Harold had to stop her scrabbling after them. “You can't have those, darling. They've been on the floor.”

“Julie says there's a five second rule.”

“She might say that,” he could have kicked himself for the present tense, “but the germs don't know that, do they?”

“Who are the Germs?” Amélie glided forward. She gave the impression of stepping forward, but as her feet didn't actually touch the ground it looked contrived. “Prussians? Why would they want her food?”

“Not people. Germs are microscopic organisms that spread disease and infection.”

“Ah.” Amélie nodded sagely. “Demons.”
