“Watch out! There is something sinister and evil under that hat!” Ralph shouted.
“I can assure you there is nothing evil nor is there anything sinister under this hat, mister Zindelour.” This coming from the man in the top coat.
Ralph shifted uneasy in his seat. He could see the top coat man’s hands inching closer to that black hat. In the breath of just one little moment Ralph saw what was going to happen, he knew that man’s secret, what that man was really about to do. Ralph knew that under that black hat was hidden a gateway to another place and another time. He also knew that everyone sitting here was going to turn into a fish if the man in the top coat were to pick up that black hat.
