Mad Jack came into the bar frantic about rats. Asked for a drink and some bread.
Oct 5 – Wed
Mad Jack came into the bar frantic about flies and cockroaches. Johnny got lectured about keeping better records, and that a tenant hasn’t made rent yet. He and Angus went upstairs to confront the bum tenant, but discovered a horrific rat-person looming over the corpse of the tenant. “He’s back, just like before. But this time, everyone is going to die!” the creature hissed, before another rat-person declared that Johnney and Angus must die. Johnny fired from the hip and nailed one of the creatures with a salty spray from his shotgun, before slamming the door to the room closed. The rat-person struggled to open the door before disappearing.
Oct 6 – Thur
Angus and Johnny continue to try and convince everyone of what they saw. Bored, Douglas left and had a strange encounter with a man.
“He’s here, and he’s coming for you all.” – Yellow spotted hand man. He cackled and fled.
Douglas saw a significant sign, but couldn’t identify it.
Oct 7 – Fri
Douglas related his tale to the rest of the group. Then, in walked a crazy looking, hair-plastered man. Bruce and Trent identified him as Harold. They started harrassing him immediately. “Tell us about those monsters that eat people!”
“Never seen no monsters. Can’t tell tales about what don’t exist.” Harold is so meek that Bruce and Trent lose interest in picking on him.
Angus tried persuading Harold to tell his story, but Harold was too “cured” to talk about monsters.
Oct 8 – Sat
“Extra extra, read all about it, toddler murdered in Fairfield streets”. Got a newspaper clipping.
Oct 10 – Mon
That Monday evening, Harold returned to the bar. “Just like before, nobody believed me.” When Johnny took interest, Harold changed his tune, “Never seen nothing. Can’t see anything never seen nothing.”
“I thought I saw something. I thought it was a monster, eating through his belly. But I didn’t see nothing, I’m cured.” Mary had a talk with him, and gave him some calming medicine.
“Well, what I thought I saw was a big slug.” Definitely not a rat. Definitely not with a human face. He also mentioned a young boy, different from the new toddler. When Mary pressed for more information, he got frantic and fled the bar.
