Easy in, easy out

It's a quick businesslike job. The Near-sighted Horologist's mechanical genius does not extend to locks. The devils pay well. The Working Rat is strangely melancholy afterward, but a lump of Stilton cheers him up.


Everything was against you

It's not the Working Rat's fault. Not exactly. Something spooks him. The snuffed candles on the Near-sighted Horologist's workbench. A muted squeal from the hallway. It doesn't matter what. After that, his paws are quaking too hard to do the job.
