Probably best not to leave them unattended. Is the Nanny around?

Permalink

She's findable, sitting on a bench outside, staring at a particular house.

Permalink

"Something happening over there?" Makoto asks.

Permalink

"A poltergeist, I think. It's been causing trouble last few nights, though hasn't yet tonight."

Permalink

"What sorts of trouble?"

Permalink

"Knocking things around, howling, keeping the family up. Last night it started lighting fires. I'm worried about it escalating - poltergeists aren't my area of expertise, but they usually don't get this bad this fast."

Permalink

"I'll keep an eye out for it tonight. And on the topic of things that go bump in the night, do you know anything about the flesh monsters?"

Permalink

She shakes her head. "I've never seen the like."

Permalink

"The boogieman collected these crystals from one of them." Makoto shows her the shards.

Permalink

She looks at them, narrowing her eyes. "Those... They reek of fear. Worse than a Boogeyman gone bad, but more concentrated than a Horror..."

Permalink

"So definitely not a natural phenomenon?"

Permalink

"No, definitely not. Someone made these, most likely."

Permalink

"Do you have a safe place to keep them? I'd rather not leave them lying around."

Permalink

"Where were they originally?"

Permalink

"In Boogey's Shadow Home. I have some concerns about possible resonant effects, if they are made of concentrated fear."

Permalink

"That's a good point. And he's inexperienced at handling complications, too. Still - my own home isn't suitable, not for that... But I can find a place to store them."

Permalink

"I might be able to- magically denature them. But that's likely to be expensive, perhaps prohibitively so."

Permalink

"And I'm not certain it'd be beneficial. They're unlikely to be very useful to whoever made them, like this."

Permalink

"Right. Well, here you go."

Permalink

"Thanks."

She takes the crystals almost gingerly. "I'll try to have these traced to their origins, too."

Permalink

"That'd be helpful."

Permalink

"I don't know how fast it'll be - we need to pursue other avenues while that's running, try to get the source of these things. Hopefully before any escalation."

Permalink

"Yeah, zombie apocalypses are not good news."

Permalink

"Or whatever else our enemy has in store..."

Permalink

"We'll deal with it, whatever it may be."
