6 - Tunguska, 1908
"I wish that my husband..." The woodcutter's wife begins. Anyanka's expecting something nasty involving putrid sores, but before she says more a portal opens in the sky. Seven small figures hurtle down into the trees.
"I wish that my husband," she repeats, inspired, "I wish the sky would fall on him... and his precious trees!"
"Wish granted," Anyanka says angrily. Reality shifts. The meteor that would have hit Moscow, granting hundreds of wishes, changes its orbit infinitesimally. When it hits the Earth months later a woodcutter will be the only casualty.
D'Hoffryn blames Anyanka, of course. She blames the midgets.
Author's note: So far as is known the Tunguska meteor did only kill one person. If it had arrived minutes earlier it would have hit much further west and killed millions.
