Grab Some Zeds

Jason M. Lee

V was barely able to snag Griffon's talon as he leapt off of the balcony, feeling Shadow return while watching part of the small apartment collapse.

"Well, talk about a dud," the demonic eagle snarked. "Too bad those Empusas busted the load-bearing walls. That bed looked really nice."

The half-devil sighed, running a hand through his hair and dusting off his pants. "The next domicile, then. Preferably someplace lacking any... unwanted guests, other than the original former occupants."

As luck would have it, Shadow was able to scout out a small house where V could reasonably "saw some logs in."
