I wasn舗t even able to get enough breath to scream. The woman, the faerie, reached down and took my fingers away from the letter opener. She withdrew it with a sharp, decisive gesture and laid it flat on the desk, my blood gleaming all over it. 舠Wizard, you know as well as I. 舡 At that moment, most of what I knew was that my hand hurt, but some dim part of me realized she was telling the truth. Faeries don舗t just get to ride in and play puppet master. You have to let them in. I舗d let my godmother, Lea, in years before, when I was younger, dumber.
Her eyes glittered, and I saw her pupils change, slipping from round mortal orbs to slow feline lengths. Cat-eyed, she regarded me, unblinking. 舠Yet have I spoken. I plan to gamble. 舡 舠Uh. 舡 舠I require your service. Something precious has been stolen. 舡 舠Let me get this straight,舡 I said. 舡 舠Not for me,舡 she murmured. 舠For the rightful owners. 舡 舠Do it yourself,舡 I said. 舠In this matter I cannot act wholly alone,舡 she murmured. 舠That is why I have chosen you to be my emissary. 舡 I laughed at her.
Just the sound of her voice made the room feel colder. 舠You have seen through this veil. Proven your worth. 舡 舠Static on the doorknob,舡 I said. 舠It should have been locked. You shouldn舗t have been able to get in here, so you must have gone through it. 舡 Still smiling, she nodded. 舡 舠You don舗t have a purse. 舡 舠Mmmm,舡 she said. 舠Yes. 舡 舠I don舗t know what you舗re talking about,舡 I said. 舡 舠You舗ll get over it. 舡 Her eyes glittered, and I saw her pupils change, slipping from round mortal orbs to slow feline lengths.
