From Freaks : The knife drew closer, cutting through the smoke in slow motion, now inches away from her neck. With wide eyes, Sheba saw the triumphant grin on Mrs. Crowley's face; one that rapidly changed to horror as something small and stinky and betailed bounced off the nearest wall and onto her head. "Monkeyboy!" Sheba shouted. She was about to help him when the floor beneath her gave a violent lurch. She looked down. The boards had given way, opening up a fire-filled hole to the floor below. For one horrible moment she teetered, about to spill down into the flames. Excerpted from Freaks by Kieran Larwood All rights reserved by the original copyright owners.
