GFL – Page 0034
Grouping For Looks is a page-by-page retelling of the Looking For Group saga through the lens of a mirror universe where Cale is a goateed tyrant and Richard is a holy soul trying to set him on a good path.
INT. CASTLE – COURT – NIGHT
Cale hovers over Krunch and Benny, who relax by a campfire. Well, try to relax. It’s hard to relax when your personal space is being invaded.
Are we any closer to finding the Sword of Truth?
We are closer to throwing the note about it into this fire.
It’s a riddle about “The Shriek”. Nothing grinds an adventure to a halt like a riddle.
RICHARD (off panel)
Go on in, little guy.
Speaking of grind…
Cale peaks in on the next room.
INT. CASTLE – PANTRY – NIGHT
Richard stands over a makeshift cage, coaxing a giant rat into it.
In you go. Then you can rejoin your family.
SOOBA (off panel)
Sooba stands poised for a pounce. Richard puts himself between the rat and Sooba. The rat scurries into the cage.
Cale stealthily scoops up the rat in the cage and wanders off.
INT. CASTLE – KITCHEN – NIGHT
Cale walks into the kitchen and immediately spots the cauldron.
The caged rat set aside, Cale lights a fire under the cauldron. He turns and sneers at the rat. Something startles him.
A transparent, immaterial young woman floats in place.
The ghostly woman faces Cale and lets out a shriek that shakes the castle and blows Cale back.
