Trina continued to stare at the pavement a moment longer, then looked up at Joan. Her eyes were hard and challenging. “We’ve seen it, some of us. Just glimpses, the light isn’t any good down there, but we’ve seen it.”
“What did you see?”
Trina glared at Joan, preemptively angry at what she imagined Joan’s reaction would be.
Joan made a small noise of encouragement. “Go on. If people are getting hurt and the police aren’t doing anything, I’d like you to tell me what you know.”
“It’s fifteen feet tall, got claws as long as my hand,” she curled two fingers and a thumb into a three-fingered claw, “and teeth.” Trina’s expression dared Joan to contradict her.
Joan eyed the length of tooth Trina was indicating. “All right,” she said. “Tell me everything you know.”
A birthday present for language-escapes, who likes Elementary and dinosaurs. Also because all right-thinking people know that “Dead Clade Walking” fell seriously short in the dinosaur department. ;-)
