Long ago, I’d explained my weird glimpses to one of the Raven’s victims. Instead of believing me, my friend grew increasingly sarcastic about my confession. He mocked me. I didn’t blame him. I’m not sure I would’ve believed me, either. In the end, his sarcasm killed him.
Laughing and gesturing like a mad bird to make fun of my premonitions, he’d lost control of his bicycle and collided with a garbage truck just as it was lowering its load.
No, I wasn’t about to tell Janice about her Raven. I’d keep watch. Stay sharp. Once the bird made an appearance, he wouldn’t leave until his prey was dead. Accidentally or with malice aforethought.
The next song, movie quote, television commercial, or anything ominous could clue me in on how to save her. At least I could give it a shot. If I didn’t keep a constant eye on Janice, her death would be on my head.
“Add it to your list.”
It startled me. The Raven hadn’t spoken to me before. I was really losing it.
Janice leaned across the table and tapped my wrist. “Earth to Penny,” she said.
She smiled. “Still dazed from your near-death experience? I would be.” She wiped her face and placed her napkin on her dish. “I was just asking if, along with cleaning and packing, could you add reordering to your list?”
Relief flooded over me. Was it strange that I was happy I was only slightly crazy and not hearing voices?
“Sure,” I answered.
Janice flagged down Betty Fae and handled the check. I slipped the only cash I had on me under my coffee cup as a tip for dealing with my momentary freakout.
As Janice bundled up, Betty Fae hit the jukebox remote. I held my breath as it hummed to life.
“Please play something nice,” I whispered to myself.
No dice. Last Kiss started playing.
“Great song! But not breakfast music,” Janice said, tossing a tip in the jar next to the register.
Betty Fae frowned and pushed another button. The jukebox shuffled. Leader of the Pack blasted right at its climax.
My stomach dropped. Unless I could keep her away from all traffic and roads, Janice was doomed.
