His voice slid against my ears like spider silk, jolting me so badly that the stone infant in my lap tumbled on to the floor. I watched as the fragile child shattered, but didn't move to save it. Slowly I turned to look him in the eye, intent on showing him that he did not frighten me.

His body shifted from lion to humanoid, never really choosing one form or the other as he gazed back. "Jadis." He said again, his voice on the verge of a rumble.

I held my head high as I answered this golden creature, but I couldn't maintain eye contact. "Did you come here in order to attempt my conversion again, my Beloved Enemy?"

"I will be the winner! I will be the queen of all of these wastelands!" My voice hit a crescendo as I jumped to my feet. I felt the full anger of my Charnian ancestry towering through me as I let out a howl of pure fury at this insolent demi-god. I was truly about to speak the Deplorable Word when he vanished, leaving only a trace of sad golden eyes in his wake.
