Lou looked over at his cat, Nyx. The black cat stared into the corner. There was nothing there.
“Nyx, knock it off. It creeps me out when you do that.”
The cat ignored him.
Lou got out Nyx’s favorite toy and dangled it from the couch. The cat finally moved and stared batting at the toy.
The Shadow Demon peaked out from the corner darkness. Good, it thought. With the feline protector otherwise engaged, he would be able to sneak out. He flexed his long, clawed fingers. It had been too long since he had a human to play with.
