Green’s Hollow was the name of the private pleasure garden that Providence Hospital sat in. Eyre and Ben Rose entered the estate, crossing to the parking lot of the small facility that only had fifty beds in it, three of which were permanently occupied, the rest permanently empty. A low building with only three floors, it was so exclusive as to be the stuff of local urban legend. They stopped at the edge of the parking lot in a copse of oak trees.
“Cereborora,” Ben said. “Shit.”
The creatures were built like hounds with two heads: one wolfish, the other like a big cat. Six of them were patrolling the grounds of the hospital, watching for intruders. Glowing green eyes searched the evening and occasionally one of the dark creatures snapped at another that had gotten too close.
Eyre put a hand on Ben’s shoulder. “What’s going on, Ben?”
Ben Rose bowed his head, seemingly defeated. “It’s all gone wrong,” he said.
