{She starts to speak, but some unseen force snaps her mouth shut. Blood starts trickling from her eyes. The demon in her mind battles Fang for control of it. Afreet shivers, and her eyes accidentally see the words she wrote on the ground. The voice in her head starts laughing and says,"Did you really believe that you could tell anyone? You fool!" The voice only she can hear laughs again, then the demon causes her to leap at Fang's throat. Her fangs start to sink in, but the strong wolf shakes her off. Afreet tries to resist the demon and runs to the third result on the next page.} –¿@¿
