Get electric and magic books. Elmer philosophize with Frank. Explain rice implant. Dissect coyote-changer body. Put spirit to rest; enlist the restless. Questions
Feb 14 8pm: Douglas discovers in DC Power vs AC Power by N. Tesla a hand sketch electrical schematic with russian text.
8pm: Angus finds a nearly destroyed book on Magical Amulets Talismans and Fetishes that indicates his protective necklace is a cursed item that will eventually kill him. The only way to remove it is to enlist the help of “supernatural beings”.
8pm: Frank approaches Elmer to get a “respected person’s help” in understanding the texts he has been reading. The texts have great teachings, and yet the people seem to not follow them. He wants to understand why there is much prejudice based on skill color – people will steal and murder from those of different color. And yet, he has known people of different color that were great and honorable leaders. Elmer explains that most common folk have not read the teachings. If he wants to understand how the common folk think, he needs to talk to the common folk. Frank then leans in close and tells Elmer in confidence: “there is still time for you to return things to the way they were. But you must hurry. You can save them; you can save your lady friend, the doctor. She has been taken to the rock. I can’t contradict the leader for he is in charge, but I know your folk can be good. You should speak with the Great Spirit and Almighty Creator. He will know what you must do. Dr. Seiler knew the way of Hyigg; he knew how to speak with the Great Spirit. Seek out the Great Spirit.” Before he can say more, Paul and Sarah Goodfield enter the Library and force him to go home with them saying: “there’s no time for reading books – too much work to do.”
8:30pm: Douglas shows the electrical diagram to Nikoli to translate the Russian text, which reads: “ultrasonic freq disrupts neurology rendering unconsciousness for several minutes. Reduction of transformer size concentrates electrically charged particles resulting in flashes of light”.
9pm: Annie autopsies the dead lizard man. She discovers:
- large eyes indicate being used to low light conditions
- pupils don’t constrict fully indicating a sensitivity to bright light
- 4 chambered heart indicates warm blooded
- stomach contains debris and small bones
- stomach lining is thick; acid is highly acidic
- brain has an additional sub-brain next to the reptilian brain that is connected to the body by a massive nerve bundle
10pm: Ghost children appear to Nikoli, and young girl with crossed arms and an attitude accosts him: “Well, are you going to help Simon? Miss Stephanie said you would help him, and yet here you are. And what about our lessons?!” Nikoli agrees to head to the school to teach them, and Douglas accompanies him.
2am: As Nikoli nears completion of the lessons, a young boy stands up, walks towards him, hugs his leg with a smile, and then vanishes. Nikoli gives the other children an “extra-curricular assignment” to watch Stephanie, Ellie, Mary, Victor, the Sheriff, and the Deputies. “Think of it like a book report that is due in two days (the night of the 16th).” When the children state that Stephanie is asleep and Nikoli inquires as to where she is, the willful young girl states: “we’ll tell you where Stephanie is after you help Simon”!
