    Zing to Afreet

    He jumps on her and pins her down. He lowers his mouth to her ear and whispers, "Dont you dare take her heart," he says it with enough venom to scare away a badger.

    To Zing and Fang

    Did you not read the last sentence? She's already gone! She's not here! And this is mostly for Fang: Don't say you can kill the demon so easily. You have to kill it physically for it to really go away. Which means you have to find it.
