One word: lawsuit. Young Knox discovers something involving Ice Slip Man that either brings down Big Daddy or elevates Big Daddy or bores the braincells out of the reader, making them wish they’d never learned to read.
Either that or Young Knox discovers that the VERY DAY AND MOMENT that Ice Slip Man fell, the Great B-Ball Jaybird Peacock was hatched. Spurred on by this discovery, he finds an old Takamahfinker Indian proverb that says that when Man falls on Ice at moment Peacock hatches, part of his soul is transferred to the Peacock.
Shortly after this Young Knox goes on a Spirit Journey wherein his Spirit Guide reveals an ancient Mesopotamian prophecy that “When the Preening Prince who prances on ice is joined to the Lurking Fish who walks the earth great Evil shall be unleashed and Death shall await you all with nasty big pointy teeth”
Realizing that A) his spirit guide is kind of a jerk and B) the prophecy refers to the moment when the Peacock met Gil (fish = gil . . . get it?) Knox runs wildly through the streets seeking the Mysterious Mystical Milford Yeti, the only being who can stop the rise of the Antichrist.
For those paying attention, I established who that was a few days ago. . . ;)
