Mister Mothman

Mister Mothman hears the scream (back side, toward Broad Street, sixth floor) and is aloft in a moment. It is seldom remarked upon, but alleyways provide surprisingly fine updrafts. When conditions are right, of course.

He tucks into a tumble going through the window and lands gently on his feet. Glass is still hitting the floor. Two goons stand near a body, only just beginning to realize what kind of trouble they’re in.

Who? one goon begins to say, interrupted as the other blurts out what?

Then Mister Mothman sweeps the lamp off the table, and the light goes out.
