A thin and shrill voice startled Mark. “You summon me?”
Mark turned toward the sound and was taken by surprise.
A girl, tossing her dark and lank hair, strode into the room through the charred doorway, followed by a small bat.
She walked over to George, while the bat, flaring its small wings, flew up to join the others and swung lazily upside down. The girl took no notice of the others’ presence in the room, which Mark found very odd.
