The Raven Saves Again!

Mysterious vigilante strikes again! Still no clue who he is! Last weekend after partying with friends at Rigg House’s Swalloween party, Nick O’Connor did what he did after every party, and walked back across campus to his dorm. Only, the short walk didn’t turn out like it usually did. A few blocks from Rigg House, he was hit from behind. “I was caught off guard . . . didn’t see him coming.

If that cat didn’t quit meowing, Mrs. Trollier from next door would soon hear about it. The rasping howl came again from the hedges, a scraping of nails on a blackboard with a husky note. Easily it could be mistaken for a dry, obnoxious cough. He doesn’t even sound like a freaking feline! A handful of butts collected in a small bunch at my feet.
