Emmy stood vigil that night as Allie worked on her painting by the light of the Strangetown moon. When the painting was completed, Emmy watched as Allie looked around her, as if in a moment of awakening, then ripped the painting to shreds.

The poor child seemed filled with anguish, but Emmy didn’t know how to help. She considered talking with Bianca, but what would she say?

“Bianca, your daughter has an unnatural love of art and I think she’s possessed…” No, it wouldn’t do. Emmy needed more proof.

The next night, Emmy waited patiently for the soft patter of Allie’s footstep on the stair. Sure enough, around 2 am, it came and Emmy watched as the girl crept outside.

Emmy followed Allie, picking up her dropped stuffed animal along the way.

“Allie, Allie…Punkin Pie,” she sang.

Nothing.

“Allie, Allie…your bunny friend is here…”

Still nothing.

As Allie painted on, Emmy’s worst fears were being realized. She couldn’t protect Bianca and her family. The DiPotere Curse was consuming Allie anyway. No matter what Emmy tried, nothing could draw Allie away from the easel.

Emmy finally went inside to make espresso and pancakes. It was going to be another long night.
