Vommack was walking home after a long Day at work. His stomach growled, reminding him that he had missed lunch, and he closed his eyes and imagined the leftover steak and mash potatoes that were waiting for him in the fridge. Mmmmm....
He was so absorbed in his visions of red meat that he didn’t notice the red hole that suddenly unfurled in front of him.
“Well, look who we found, Teekl,” Klarion remarked to his familiar, who was in were-tabby form.
The huge cat let out a yowl, which turnout out as a low rumble through the Night air.
Vommack froze, then quickly wiped the drool from the corner of his lip. “Um...” he stammered, then waved his hand in front of the franken-feline. “I am not the snack you are looking for...”
Do cats smile? Because he could sworn that this one did...a malignant, voracious smile.
Klarion chuckled. “She doesn’t like you,” he jibed at vommack. “Well, maybe you’ll taste better than you look.” He nodded to the cat. “Go get him, darling.”
It let out another yowl, louder this time, much louder, and then pounced at vommack.
Vommack swallowed deeply, seeing the moonlight glint off the animal’s fangs.
ShadowAngel didn’t know what she was doing back here. After what had happened the other Night, she...wait, what did happen the other Night? There were vague flashes, glimpses of sights, memories of sounds and smells, feelings...but together they meant nothing to her, nothing but sound and fury.
“Well, well,” an all too familiar voice greeted her. She turned, feeling both exhilaration and dread. Part of her had hoped to stare into those enchanting dark eyes again, she had to admit, but another part of her screamed at her to run, that there was something not right about the whole situation...
“I shouldn’t be here,” ShadowAngel murmured, glancing down at her hands, wrapped around a glass tumbler.
Queen Bee gently reached out and placed her own hand on top. “But you are here,” she cooed.
ShadowAngel gulped. “Yes...”
As death approached, vommack’s life flashed before his eyes. He saw his father’s proud face as he stumbled onstage to accept his award in second grade. He saw crowd (admittedly only a few dozen people, but to him it had seemed an ocean) cheering the grand slam he had hit in little league. He saw the girl he had kissed in high school, and the girl he wished he had kissed in college. He saw himself tearing up the track in the 100 meter dash...
Wait...he had never been in track...
Vommack came back to awareness just as the black blur, moving at a speed he wouldn’t have thought humanly possible, collided with the leaping cat, knocking it into the brick wall of a building.
The ground shook where he stood, and a cloud of dust exploded up. When it settled enough for him to open his eyes, he saw a feline-shaped hole in the building’s side.
“C’mon,” his savior mumbled, and grasped his arm in an astonishingly firm grip. Vommack could see now that the shirt the boy wore was not pure black, but had an offset pentagon with a large ‘S’ in the center drawn on it.
“Wh...where?” vommack coughed.
“To safety,” was the only reply.
