According to Usha, the owner of quaint Iprali’s only guesthouse, there used to be 22 families in the village, but they all left. Now there are only two. And he really doesn’t like the other family. Their dogs are evil.
Perhaps that is why his family keeps a bird of prey in the house and his grandson is building a crossbow. I don’t want to be here when the deal goes bad, when real stuffed badgers come back from the dead and fake stuffed cats are nothing to joke about.
