This evening I took the time to use a Depression-era recipe to make something called “Water Pie”. Naturally, the appeal of the thing is its cheapness, and indeed it was. I already owned all of the ingredients except for milk and nutmeg and they were easy to get alongside my usual groceries.
It isn’t bad actually. It’s like pumpkin pie without the pumpkin. The primary taste is the nutmeg. It’s like a watered-down nutmeg-flavoured pie with the texture of a pumpkin pie. Now you know.
October had been in fights as a kid and never liked them.
Now she was here, on a roof with a team of strangers being attacked by Beekeepers and God knows why. She didn’t like this either.
She didn’t know these people. She’d seen the Street Sentry in action and he seemed like a good guy. He was on her side. That one weird old lady and the scary guy were too, but that was less comforting.
And Adam. He was just standing there. Angry? Sad? Both. He’d really wanted this team thing to work out.
October joined the fray.
