My neighbour told me that she saw Promila at the nearby wholesaler. Armed with curiosity (and a dire need of a new form of entertainment), I rang her doorbell.
“Oh you’re just in time, I’m almost done cooking lunch,” she said as she walked ahead. I followed her only to be hit in the face with a string of garlic; it was then that I realised that there was garlic all over the place, one even attached to the fan with an elastic band.
“What’s with all the garlic around?”
“It’s to keep the virus away.”
“Ya, the virus was caused by a bat and garlic keeps vampires away.”
