The worsefood is alarmed but not deterred when the broom encounters resistance to being further swung! It's yelling!

Permalink

Alright, well, time for worsefood to become ONE nibble's worth of boring.

Permalink

Now the worsefood is screaming LOUDER AND LOUDER and wielding the broom with less skill.

Permalink

Okay, like two nibbles.  Maybe three.  Just enough for it to get inside to goodfood.

Permalink

The worsefood gets quieter, and slower, and finally runs inside and slams the door.

Permalink

And now the three of them can hang out in here!  That was really weird.  Is there a knitting basket around, it's still curious about that and it would be pretty nice if the foods went back to it.  Especially if goodfood made goodsounds during.

Permalink

The goodfood is crying. The worsefood is sitting next to it and hugging it and also crying.

Permalink

Okay, that makes no sense; it didn't even nibble goodfood?  It has been SO careful not to nibble goodfood.

Permalink

Goodfood is crying anyway. They are hugging each other and sobbing.

Permalink

Foods are so mysterious.  Are there any cool things for it to poke at while it waits around to see if they stop?

Permalink

There's another one of the mysterious light-up squares, though it is not lit up. There is a deck of cards spread out on the kitchen table. There is a taxidermied cat on the hearth.

Permalink

Oh, cards!  It saw that one food doing things with those.  It pokes them a few times and then attempts to find out whether it can derive any meaning out of trying to arrange them like the food did.  To the best of its ability and memory.

Permalink

The foods, upon noticing the cards in motion, scream and flee the house together.

Permalink

. . . Oh, okay.  Well, it follows them.  (The cards are interesting but not sensorily pleasing; it leaves them behind.)

Permalink

They run to the church! It's been there before! They run as fast as they can and shut the door behind them and barricade it as best they can.

Permalink

It has been there before!!  And the door worked every - okay the door does not work this time.  Doors are very mysterious.  It will look in the windows instead.

Permalink

There they are, adding things to the barricade.

Permalink

That's so interesting because before it was on the inside looking out and now it's outside but it can still see inside, but not go there.  Very strange.

Does the glass still tap-tap?  Is it still cool or is it warm from this side?  Maybe the lightbulb was coolcold from the inside, if only it'd had a way to feel in there.

Permalink

The glass tap-taps. It's getting dark now and the glass is pretty chilly.

Permalink

Huh!

It looks for another way into the church.

Permalink

There is another door, but it's locked.

Permalink

Okay.  It'll go back to tapping irregular beats on the windows and watching the foods.

Permalink

The foods are done with the barricade and are huddled together on their knees. They startle at the louder taps.

Permalink

For like, a long time?  Do they do anything interesting after a bit?

Permalink

Eventually one of them lies down.
