Sunny Laverstone

Harold opened up the tourist map of Laverstone. It was a simplified birds-eye view of the town with the major attractions picked out in larger drawings. The two churches, the museum and the manor, with its original seventeenth century mausoleum , were depicted with a cartoon gargoyle pointing out the best features.

“Wait a minute,” he said. “The Tattered Moon is on here.”

“Why shouldn’t it be?” Jasfoup asked. “It’s almost as old as the Manor.”

“But it burned down in 1756,” said Harold. “Only those with the Sight can see it.”

“That’s right.” Harold reached across and flipped the map over so that Harold could read the front page. “It’s the supernatural Tourist’s Map.”
