THEN: “Dad’s on a hunting trip. And he hasn’t been home in a few days.”
The boys pop in to Precious Pawn, but they’re not interested in what’s on public display. The wad of cash Dean flashes at the owner gains them access to the good stuff in the back. It’s a treasure trove of mystical objects. Your hands of glory, gris-gris bags, dragon’s breath, creepy dolls …
