Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Long-Ago Locket” (part 2 of 2)
Jimmy asks Colonial Guy what year it is, and CG replies that it’s 1780, which I guess is supposed to be surprising or something? I don’t know. I think it’s pretty obvious, what with all the British soldiers, isn’t it?
The Redcoats catch up to Jimmy and CG (that’s what they get for standing around yakking), and so they split up as to have a better chance of getting away. As he runs off, CG begs Jimmy not to forget his promise to get him to Harrisville. Jimmy makes a break for it, wandering onto the very modern road behind the park, where he nearly gets run over by an equally modern Mack truck.
But he still has the knife, so he can’t be crazy! Which means it’s time for another trip to KFC.
The Northern Colonel Sanders says the knife is in great condition. He looks at the inscription and finds that it belonged to a guy named Lieutenant William. And then the Colonel loans Jimmy a history book so he can find out more about the lieutenant. Because knowledge is power!
