“Well, let me think. She felt dangerous. I don’t know how to explain but it felt like she would be a dangerous person to have for an enemy, and an even more dangerous one to have as a friend. She was tall, with long black hair, and really full lips. And oddly enough, she seemed frightened. That’s all I can remember.” She vanished back into the wall before I could say another word.
“I guess she got bored.” Max picked up a biscuit.

Kelson jumped up. “I’ll get it. You eat.” She vanished into the dining room, heading toward the front door. A moment later, the sound of loud voices echoed into the kitchen, and then, before I knew what was happening, an all-too familiar face entered the room.
