For a start, Ellie seems to have developed laser vision. I’ve suspected it for a while, actually: she has Super-Powers! Now, where did I put that Kryptonite?
And where did she learn to do Shakespearian acting?!
And as for Jake: apparently he’s a Zombie! The world’s cutest Zombie, maybe, but a Zombie nonetheless!
That would at least explain his voraciously wolfing down the liver* I fed him last night; he always has had a very good appetite…
And now he seems to fancy that he’s some sort of King on a Throne!
And if that wasn’t bad enough they’re clearly conspiring against us:
So we’ve got a super-powered classically-trained actor with laser vision & the King of the Baby Zombies plotting against us?
Now I really am worried!
* I cooked Lamb’s Fry (fried New Zealand lamb’s liver, a delicacy from my youth) last night, & offered some to Jallie. Jake gobbled it up, but Ellie wasn’t so keen.
