Red text flashed fluorescent against the brickwork as the scholars leaned closer, each trying to gently elbow the others out of the way to get a better look.

“It’s utterly impossible for it to have just suddenly appeared from nowhere,” Professor Night concluded, tugging at his tuft of white beard, “and yet it is also utterly impossible for it to have been put here by anyone, so therefore we come to an unescapable conclusion: the Sign does not exist.”

A sheet was put over the Sign and none of them ever mentioned it again.
