Today's Stichomancy for Mike Myers

Then he picked up the head and tossed it after the body. "Don't be so glum," he admonished the former as he carried it toward the well; "smile!"

"But how can he smile?" questioned the girl, a half-puzzled, half-frightened look upon her face. "He is dead."

The girl shook her head and edged away from the man--toward the door.
