Chapter 14

Jesus Lizard

  • Good news finally arrives in July: no one has died in a week. The plague might actually be gone.
  • The people hold a service in August to commemorate the occasion. Just as Mompellion begins his sermon, however, he's interrupted by someone screaming his name.
  • It's Aphra. And she has a knife. And she's holding Faith's corpse. Good grief.
  • Mompellion restrains Aphra and accidentally—we're serious about this one—pops Faith's skull off of her corpse.
  • Pause for either gasps or laughter.
  • Aphra loses it. She stabs Elinor in the neck before kissing Faith's skull.
