    Wow, you left me wanting more–what a clever way to get us over to the Speakeasy 😉 I thought she had to murder someone as an initiation. Shutting the door made me think of The Godfather.

    I bet she knifes Grace. And then throttles the rest of them with her Combs of Death. But I see your comment about the conclusion coming in your speakeasy piece, so I shall wait to find out. 🙂

    I loved the act of adjusting the combs. It’s such a simple human thing, and so easy to envision. It made the narrator come to life for me.
