The Devil in Her

[Extracted from the files of Mark Time P.I.]


Smoke from my cigarette filters orange streetlight shafting through the venetian blinds, obscuring my silhouette; her eyes reflected that streetlight back at me.
On the street they call her Meph. Her mother, who named her Krystal, will have a cadenza if she finds out about the drugs.
Luckily for her, and for me perhaps, I was not hired to analyse her behaviour on the street but merely to find her and return her to the fold of the family mansion.

I had to look up 'have a cadenza'. from here out (is there not another word for that?) i'll be using that instead of 'have a cow'.

Wise choice Tom; a cadenza is far more classy than a cow :)
