Hi Internet People,
That last episode was intense! The flashback, the reveal, seriously so much to take in. For this week the ravens are getting a bit closer to the guests and are right in the thick of it during the big reveal. It’s a pretty short addition, but still wanted to get Balt and Phil into the story.
Balt and Phil moved slowly away from the monitor as they saw the dark shadow of Edgar’s silhouette begin to stand up. They remained silent as they watched their owner lift the body of Annabel Lee into his arms and begin his somber pilgrimage back into the home. A pall seemed to hang over the ravens as the deaths of that night finally seemed to become real for them. When Edgar appeared holding the body of his lost love they fell into step behind him, joining the funeral march. They could not tell what he was thinking, but they did notice as a large rock fell from the folds of Annabel’s skirt. The author held it, a sort of wistful look upon his face, when suddenly a scream jarred him from his thoughts. As Edgar ran out of the room, Balt and Phil darted out of his way, but quickly took to the air to see what possibly could have happened.
They swooped to the floor and moved into the shadows of the dining room. Before Charlotte stood Ernest, his knife cutting the air between them. When the weapon wielding man insisted that soup stained his blade and not the blood of one of his fellow authors, Balt couldn’t keep himself quiet any longer.
“I’ve heard of a soup spoon, but never a soup knife.”
Phil cackled at the joke, which finally broke the oppressive somber air between the ravens. While normally the two birds would have worried that they would be discovered by the remaining dinner party patrons, the room was loud with murderous allegations, which muffled any sort of birdsong. Balt and Phil stared, scarcely moving a feather now, as Edgar revealed a red handkerchief. When Charlotte began to confess to her involvement in the murders and her sister’s part in them, they exchanged quick glances and noted that the humans seemed just as shocked as they were by this revelation. When Anne appeared in the doorway Phil let out a shocked croak. Even with two murderers in the room, everyone seemed surprised by the sound of a raven inside the house. Almost every person in the room turned to looked to turn toward the darkened corner, except for Lenore. She leveled her gaze at Edgar and in a tone that seemed as cold as the grave she said,
“Really, you still invited ravens to the party?”
