“Stare at him," said Ghost. "They won't bite you if you keep staring at them."

Steve backed away. "They bite?"

Not really. They hiss at you, mostly. The only time geese are ever dangerous is when you happen to be standing on the edge of a cliff. I heard about a guy that almost got killed that way."

By geese?"

Yeah, there was a whole flock of them coming after him. All hissing and cackling and stabbing at his ankles with their big ol' beaks. He didn't know you had to stare them right in the eye, and he panicked. They backed him right over a fifty-foot cliff."

This guy had wings," said Ghost. "He flew away.”
