Did you notice Bos' hand earlier? ;-)

In my original short story that I based this chapter on, Mirjam simply used her phone to alert the others. Guess that won't happen in this version now...

Y'know, being abducted by a tackily-dressed pawn shop owner and his giant inhuman brute servant/master (I don't know which yet) and being locked in a dank dungeon sounds like an interesting Halloween story. Like something from a roadside haunted attraction.

Hmmm, yes, you a right... In hindsight, if I had tweaked the tone of this chapter to be on the more spooky side...

(And to think I just made the claim that I don't have a Halloween story this year...)

Why do I get the feeling that I've seen that big guy in a previous chapter?

Anyway, be careful with that fowl, it's not like you can go abduct another.

Nope, Bos did not appear anywhere before this chapter.
Which makes me wonder which of my characters is similar enough that you came to this conclusion.

Some of the ghost creatures in Chapter 8 bear similar design elements. (bare chests and/or loincloths)
And speaking of loincloths, some Atlanteans (above all Yalala's lover head of the guard Dolon) have those too.

But none of them is supposed to be Bos.

Hey! Phones aren't cheap, you know!

And seriously, careful with the bird. That can not be the proper way to hold it.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Yeah, Bos should be more careful - he is totally rumpling the poor bird's bowtie with his large hand! ;-)

So, Bos? A minotaur perchance?
Microraptor edit delete reply
And here I thought I picked a name that isn't a that obvious hint...

But shush! ;-)
