The pocket doors to the front hall crashed open. Mrs. Embers stumbled into the studio, strands of dark hair falling across her eyes. “I need your help, Julius. I’m hurt.” She clutched her stomach.
“Christ!” Julius put down the flash lamp. “Get them out of here, Gracie.” He charged across the room and grabbed his mother by the arm to escort her away.
“You need to go immediately.” Grace handed me Stephen’s parcel and pushed on my back to get me to move faster.
I looked over my shoulder. “What happened to Mrs. Embers?”
“Please, just go.”

It was a cheerful ending to a brilliant Christmas Eve. But when Fenestra showed up to take her home, Morrigan was surprised to realise she felt a certain amount of relief.
She adored Hawthorne’s family. She really did. She loved the way that Cat and Dave teased each other. Homer made her laugh all the time, and even though she’d only just met Helena, she liked her already. She didn’t even mind being tyrannised by Baby Dave. And Hawthorne, well…. he was her best friend.

They looked everywhere.
The woods behind our backyard. The school. The woods behind the school. The basement. The attic. The pond, even though the pond was a long walk away. They called the parents of every kid in Aidan’s class, even the ones who’d moved away.
We opened every door to every room in our house, every door to every closet. We searched every crawl space, checked under every bed. We pulled back each of the shower curtains and looked for footprints in all of the rugs. It was a game of hide and seek that got old after five minutes, alarming after an hour, and the scariest thing that had ever happened to any of us after that.
Aidan couldn’t be found.

“I wonder what this lever does,” said Sponge, pulling on said lever.
There was a bright flash and a whine like a small dog with a cold falling down a well and Mildew blinked once or twice, momentarily blinded, and found that Sponge and the bothy had disappeared and were now replace by a large group of rather grumpy fold, who, a cursory glance led Mildew to suppose, were, in all probability, Vikings.
