It seems so innocuous, so harmless, but let me tell you - here be danger and here be monsters! But I digress... And while I have prattled on to soothe your tattered nerves, the penny did indeed drop into the wishing well - plink - plink - as it ricochets off the deep dark walls, sploosh! It hits the bottom.... We hold our breath. We hear nothing. We heave a sigh of relief in the silence. To soon... A whirring, a scraping, a thundering, a ripe stench and a flapping of wings - something is coming!
