Conversation in a White House Car Park
By Marcus L. Rowland

"Ziegler," Toby says to the cellphone, "this isn't a good... Cousin Willow? That you?"

He listens, nods, says "okay... Vampire you from an alternate world. Coming here. Yes, I am calm" he shouts "considering she was just here. I thought you were dead."

He listens, says "It's okay, another staffer took care of it. Chopped her head off, she turned to dust. Reminds me," he covers the phone and says "why were you carrying a sword under your coat?"

CJ shrugs, says "on my way to fencing class," sheaths it. Under her breath she mutters "There can be only one."
