New Babbage- Early Spring
Morning brought with it many changes across New Babbage. Winter was over, the snows had melted, and another successful Oiling Festival had commenced. Life carried on like usual. The Gangplank crew was off on another adventure. The Urchins rose from their usual hiding spots and went about their daily mischief. The town clocks continued to be wound with great
care and precision. Everything seemed normal – or as normal as you could find in New Babbage.
But today was not normal. As the sunlight spread across the land, so to did an invisible energy ripple. Only a select few in town would even be able to perceive this ripple, or its effects. As it spread, any and all evidence of the creature once known as St. Jimmy vanished, as if he had never existed. Life moved on, unaware.
That night, a strange blue box was delivered to the junkyard. A small boy watched, unseen.
