The Living Statue

Yesterday night, Jimmy and I went to the site behind the Old Imperial Theatre where Loki's old factory exploded last year, and where Triky died...
Loki had told us about some kind of pottery he found there while cleaning it up, and he called an archaeologist named Bernard Blindside to tell him what it was and if it was worth some money.

 The rumbles were delimited by thin string lines and two little bottles had been left there, as well as digging trowels or something.
The "pottery" itself looked more like the emerged part of a stone-made statue of some kind. Like a hooded robed figure, a priest maybe. Jimmy said it looked like a medieval statue. Maybe a knight. I thought it could be a coffin too, with a skeleton inside.
We got closer to examine it better, and we started to hear a regular sound, definitely coming from under the statue, or maybe inside it...

The sound resembled a heartbeat.

Later, Caspian and Miss Sky and Mister Scottie joined us, and they too heard the heartbeat. Mr Scottie thought it might be a machinery inside the statue, and that it could have been triggered recently because nobody noticed the sound earlier.
I don't know. As Jimmy remarked, so many strange things happened in the last years, why not a statue with a beating heart?
Miss Sky looked at the statue and said the whole block could be the heart itself, as it was vaguely shaped like one.
Once again I don't know.
But I know I won't be sleeping in the hideout anytime soon. It's much too close to there and I don't want a live statue to come strangle me in my sleep!

I hope we can meet Mister Blindside soon. Maybe he can tell us how old that thing is, and WHAT on Earth it is.

I also noticed an awful smell !!
I mentioned something to Young Master Loki he just laughed at me .. sigh,,, I do worry about that boy !!!

Oh yes Miss Breezy, I do intend to stay safe!
Loki doesn't always realize how dangerous things around him are getting...
You smelled something? Do you think there might be a corpse in the statue??

I think I speak for Dr Beck when I urge caution, young Myrtil - maybe this thing was buried away for a good reason...

Oh I am cautious! I'm not sleeping near it.
