He prepared the table, placed his equipment on the side and then went to fetch his next
victims. He entered the room where he kept his 'supplies' and picked Rosemary, 19
years of age, and Basil, 25. He opened their cages and dragged them to another room.
He pushed the young girl to one side and lifted Basil onto the table. He picked up his
knife, and went to work on him.
The next morning he opened his restaurant as usual. 'That was delicious, what's your
secret for the lamb?' asked a customer.
'Rosemary,' he replied.
'And the soup?' 'Basil.'
