Jane was explaining about Austin. "Austin is a peregrine falcon, the most widespread species of falcon on earth. He was named after"- Jane's voice faltered. "A-anyway, Austin is the fastest falcon of his kind I have ever seen, not to mention the kindest, smartest, & gentlest. Who wants to pet him"? The children smiled & went up to pet Austin as if he were a dog.
Joel nodded in agreement. "I hope it is not the Westing curse". Upon hearing those words, Jane gasped as if her brother just died.
Joel sighed. "As you know, our circus started during the Victorian Era. When Queen Victoria died, it was thought that one of us murdered her. Although she died from sickness, it was still believed she died from murder. They said to have placed a curse on us. All of the circus is to be affected...but it is said the ringmaster takes the most damage".
Jane gasped once again. "Like when our father died! He was the former ringmaster! Oh, I hope the curse is false"!
