Promises and rat blood

The promise has been kept. Your neighbour's wallpaper may never be the same again and it will be weeks before she invites guests for dinner, but the rats are gone. A tiny bullet-hole in your hat is the only mark upon you or your conscience.

Rare Success

Too small for mounts

Your promise and your conscience are both satisfied. The rats are now mere furry memories and your neighbour can start having dinner parties again. You have to wonder, though, what the rats were going to do with all these beetles.


A promise kept

You have kept your promise and that is what is important. You may have been forced to retreat from a rank of rifle-rats. You may have been bitten repeatedly. Your neighbour's rat problem may be as serious as ever. But you kept your promise.
