Photographer Unknown, (No One Move!)

“Hadn’t we better help,” said a constable who was new to the Watch.

“They don’t deserve help,” said Vimes. There was a clank of armor and then a long, deep growl, right outside in the street. And a scream and then another scream. and a third scream modulated with “NONONOnonononononoNO!…aarghaarghaargh!” Something heavy hit the door.
