Example text

He still has a bump on his head from where the cello connected. Besides, he saw us burying the cello at the back of the yard two days ago. Zack and I gave it a great send-off, a funeral with a twenty-one-gun salute. Without the guns, of course. Linny shakes her head at Mom. Then Zack and I are off. ” I ask him. “Don’t talk,” he says. ” We head over there, and don’t even have to knock on her door. Fred explodes down the hallway; his eyes bulge and I can count his canines. He’s ready for a quick meal.

She slams the door, just missing his muzzle. ” She smiles at us with yellow teeth. I remind myself to brush and floss so my own teeth don’t look like hers when I’m an old man. With a bony hand on Zack’s shoulder, she guides him into her studio. I sink into a kitchen chair to wait. Over my head, the curtains are sheared off halfway up. “Fred loves the taste of lace,” Old Lady Campbell told us once. 51 I sit there, dying of boredom. I slide open a drawer. Knives, forks, and a bottle of Feel Like New tablets, four a day for four months.

I see the black box, trailing dirt and tied up with a rope that has about a thousand knots. It waits for us, like a giant squid ready to destroy us. I have to think fast. The weedy woods are only a trek across the street, past the driveway of the empty house, and—­ I have a better idea. Lester Tinwitty’s soup kettle on the town round! That baby is so thick it’ll take the blast easily. Lester would be proud of me. I grab the box by the rope with one hand, unlock the door and drag Steadman down the stairs with the other.
