The Paladin Prophecy Chapter 45: The Accident

By Mark Frost

Chapter 45: The Accident

  • What's the accident? Did someone replace all copies of The Force Awakens with The Phantom Menace?
  • No, it's not that bad. It's just a plane crash. Will's parents are dead.
  • Dr. Robbins takes Will to speak with the investigators, one of whom is Mr. Hobbes, the nefarious Bald Man, who must be getting serious overtime pay for all this work.
  • Hobbes attempts to take Will to social services, but headmaster Rourke steps in, saying he is Will's legal guardian.
  • They leave, and Will asks if that's true. Rourke says they'll work on making it true. Aww.
  • When it sinks in that his parents are gone, Will cries.
  • So Rourke takes Will to Popski's, the diner. Nothing helps a person grieve like a huge stack of pancakes.
