News: Repose & B&B
[When it happens, it comes without warning. It's midday. A little after. Cloudy outside. Dreary. Normal. Until, as if struck by a blast wave, windows around town shatter and car alarms go off. There's no epicenter to the apparent detonation. It just happens. Sudden seismic activity is the theory, and, in fact, seismograms a few hundred miles away show the evidence in waving arms of ink. The problem is this: no one felt so much as a tremor. It's just the windows. The car alarms. Dogs barking. Startled babies crying.
In separate news, two of the elderly guests who call the B&B home died overnight, seemingly within hours of each other. It's not uncommon, given the B&B's status as impromptu nursing home for Repose's aging population. But, two in a night is unusual. Both seem to have passed naturally.]
