Mary-Lynnett and her brother Mark preformed a kinship seremony, now knowing everything about the Night World and its laws, and are back in the girls' house trying to fighure out who killed the girl's Aunt Opal. Ash sneeks into the house and is found by the Carters and the sisters. He telles them he knows that the Carters know all about the Night World. He tells them he didn't kill Aunt Opal and he doesn't know who did. At this point a goat from the barn out back is thown onto the front porch and the children inspect it. The goat had been staked over and over with tiny peices of wood and in the gaots mouth is a black iris. The kids thing it represents the Black Iris Club, a vampire club that welcomes various members from the Night World. Ash also belongs to this club.
