#AtoZChallenge Day 8: H



“H is for Hector, done in by a thug.”  What self-respecting thug attacks children, anyway?  Especially strangling them with a scarf (see illustration)!  Poetic justice would be for him to swing from a gallows… Even Don Corleone wouldn’t have stood for such behavior, and he led one of the Five Families in New York!  But he never allowed children to be hurt, or women either, for that matter.

Maybe it was Pennywise, his specialty was children, after all, and he would have been due to make an appearance around then (every thirty years, you know)… Then again, there’s no indication that this happened in Derry, Maine, which is Pennywise’s stomping grounds.  Of course, since he only appears there every thirty years, there’s nothing that says he doesn’t travel around the country, or the world for that matter, during the intervening years.  The Losers Club only researched how far back he appeared in Derry, after all, he could have easily been elsewhere in between those years.  Hmm, maybe someone should check into that…

    Too bad E has passed, or E is for Elsewhere could be a good follow up to this! Glad I found you through the A to Z Challenge.

    H is for Halfway There
