By the book

The Frenchman lurched, sly missed, and landed headfirst into the  chandelier, which hadn't been there before, but now it was. Sly hung from the chandler briefly and dropped to the floor.  Nick yelled, " arrrggghhh" and threw the book at the Frenchman, for no apparent reason whatsoever. The Mist screamed, "noooooo!' and made a grab for the book, which went right through him. The Frenchman was away in the furthest shadows of the room by then, because the chrystal chandelier shed a lot of light, and soul snatchers aren't overly fond of light. The book continued on its unencumbered flight, and hit Moonwalker right in the hat as she entered the pub. It knocked her hat off and landed with a thump on the floor behind her. Moonwalker turned around, picked up her hat, dusted it off and put it back on her head. Then she bent down and picked up the book. She carried it further into the light to get a better look it, and it suddenly began to glow.

The End
