They found a piece of rebar and a couple more right-sized chunks of brick and a rusty old mortar spade that Laura told Theo would probably break if he farted on it but he decided to keep it on him anyway. One of the windows in the garage had long since been busted out, and they crawled in to find that the door leading into the house contained no hardware.
The door eased open with the faint hissing of bottom seal against dusty floor and they were in and they immediately heard the voice of Flythe like some mad blathering hermit come wandering down out of a cave "...it is the moonsong that you hear and it is ageless and you will SHUT YOUR MOUTHS and let it sing..."
They came to the kitchen and could tell by the proximity of the voice that he was just in the next room, so Laura put a hand on Theo's chest and motioned for him to crouch, "Okay, I am going to go out there and act like I just stumbled into the house by mistake, and he's going to chase me and when you see me run back in here," she motioned across the entrance of the kitchen, "you will be hiding over there and you hit the next thing comes through that door with the rebar as hard as you can."
