Day three, or October 3rd, in the #Inktober Initiative. Today’s theme is ‘Poison’… and would you believe it? We have come across some… two clearly labelled bottles of it in fact, on an old, cobweb-covered shelf. What are the chances of that?, I hear you ask. And I myself wonder the same…

Yesterday we were rapping on the door of Swift Manor, but couldn’t get in. We’ve returned there today, and as if by magic, the doors – both of them – opened by themselves. Inside the long dark hallway there are a number of doors – the middle one on the left open just a little, and I’m sure a voice called from within the room ‘In here!’. Obviously the room was empty, apart from the spiders and the cobwebs and dusty old furniture – and these two wonky bottles of poison on the shelf.

    1. Oh, indeed, Beverly!
      I think these bottles may have been left as a little warning…

  3. Best wear gloves when handling such bottles dude – no telling if they’ve leaked anything and a lot of poisons kill with a touch… 🙂

    God Bless!

    1. I’ve just left them were they are, Prenin. Not knowing what is in them, or how long they’ve been there…
