IT KILLED THE CAT
By Melissa L. Webb
Curiosity is a strange thing. It’s overpowering, forcing you to your knees. It doesn’t matter how long you fight it, curiosity will win in the end. Every single time.
It gnaws at your edges, consuming you slowly until there is nothing left to do but seek out that one thing haunting your mind.
Curiosity has you hooked at this point. All you can do is squirm as it pulls you down into the unknown, where knowledge is lurking in the shadows, waiting to sink its teeth into you.
I know this more than anyone. I have seen it happen time and time again. It’s all I can think about as I prepare my cursed objects. The world will suffer and all because I laid my curious wares out on this table and opened my shop for the day.
