No time for detailed record-keeping. Assets and liabilities… I have located Rose Cottage and been narrated through its history by Carolyn, which is the only blessing to be had from her possession. The beast lusting for Maggie taunts her relentlessly with its feral aria.  I am now in pursuit.  Maggie is worse than ever. BC […]
