“Mr. Ingles was lying on the floor, in front of the soon-to-be-dismantled time machine, as lifeless as a brick.”
“There was no way he could be alive. They didn’t even bother to take his pulse.”
“So, they should have at least tried,” Josh insisted. “Did they call 911? Or did they forget the number?”
“It wouldn’t have done any good,” Ester said solemnly. “They didn’t know where to take his pulse.”
“And you said these men were brilliant? Even my dog knows where my wrist is.”
“They couldn’t find Mr. Ingles’ wrist—or his arms. He was just one mass of flesh, intertwined with streaks of white cotton and blue denim, with a head in the middle. His eyes were still open, frozen in a look of horror.”
“Weird.” Josh wanted to take another step backwards—more like a hundred.“Yeah, weird was the word the police used.” Ester’s voice wavered. “Weird was written all over the coroner’s report. And weird was the synonym people attached to our family.”
