Painting the town Red

Watching from a high window, Zia, the young girl saved by Mendez a year earlier, spies a masked stranger sneaking away from the mansion. Sliping downstairs she discovers a crude red cross painted on the gate. Although she doesn’t understand the meaning, she knows it’s probably not a good sign.
On finding the disgarded pot, Zia wanders down the street painting red crosses on every gate she sees until the paint runs out.

I get the feeling this is another classic film plot ...

You 'get the feeling'?
Really?
Do you not read to your children?

Maybe I should try reading them the old classics. We usually get time for a couple of short stories - usually modern books with big pictures and short text. e.g. Jez Alborough or the Winie the Witch books or Charlie and Lola.

Maybe we should start on the Grimm Fairy Tales or the Arabian Nights ...

hmmm...somehow I think I would struggle to adapt the intricate storyline of "That's not my robot" into a D&D setting.

....Bodush walked through the dark corridors of his lair and turned a corner, startled by the sudden appearance of a hulking bronze golem.
"That's not my golem," he said to himself,"Its face is too well-polished". He turned and ran, suddenly remembering that none of his spells would affect it.
