A Bibliomantic Tale…


“Curses,” said Butch, tugging at his collar in the sticky heat.

“Now, what?” sighed Serafina.

“It’s another of those Silent Eye thing-a-me-jigs.”

“A Walk and Talk Weekend?”

“That’s the one.”

“And what’s so bad about that?”

“Well, nothing, ‘cept we’ll have to give some readings.”

“Not necessarily,” chimed Brown Rabbit, slipping his watch back into a jacket pocket, “you could always take some readings instead.”

“I’m not sure I understand the difference between taking a reading and giving one,” grumbled Butch.

“It’s quite straightforward,” smiled Brown Rabbit producing a small book from his other jacket pocket.



“I had a feeling it might be,” laughed Serafina.

“Then you shall go first,” said Brown Rabbit, bowing and offering her the book, “open it up!”

“What, anywhere?” said Serafina taking the book from Brown Rabbit.

“Anywhere you like.”

Serafina’s eyes closed and a moment later the book fell open and displayed pages two-six-three and two-six-four.

“Okay, Butch,” said Brown Rabbit, “number two or number three?”

“It’ll have to be number three, I suppose,” growled Butch.

“A man may not be a number,” smiled Brown Rabbit, “but the truth often is.”

“What is he talking about?” said Serafina.

“I have absolutely no idea,” said Butch.
