The Paizley Snail
On an overcast, grey, miserable day Paizley ventured out from Delphi with her Sweetshell, May, to the nearby cafe, Get Mugged, in Centropolis to meet up with her friend Frankie for a catch up.
While Frankie had a glass of pear cider, Paizley ordered a bottle of ginger beer. Little May, being a tiny little thing, had a thimble of water to make sure she was hydrated for the walk home.
Paizley and Frankie fell into an easy conversation, chit chatting about the latest hat fashions, knitting and the upcoming Survival celebrations.
So lost in conversation, Paizley didn’t notice the quiet clinking each time she took a drink out of her bottle of ginger beer.
It was only when she had less than half left and poured the remaining ginger beer in a glass did she see it.
Part of a decomposing snail tumbled out of the bottle with the ginger beer and made a loud SPLASH as it fell into the glass.
Aghast, Paizley shot out of her seat and ran all the way home.
