Book 1, Chapter 56

Ean slipped into his apartment backwards because he was watching to make certain Rachel didn’t see anything. As such, he couldn’t see the fight behind him – but he could hear the splintering of bone and pulping of flesh.

As soon as the door closed, he spun around. “Hang in there!” he shouted. “I’m on the way!”

“TOO LATE,” the demon roared. “YOUR FRIEND HAS BEEN DEFEATED.”

“Yeah,” growled JD. He threw down a game controller in disgust. “And by a freaking button masher, too!”

On the TV, Ean could see they had been playing Fantasy Fighter.   The Demon Knight roared over the fallen corpse of JD’s character while the TV intoned: “Holy Knight has been defeated, and for now darkness reigns…”

“OH, BOO-HOO,” Fifi said from the couch, beside JD. “I’VE GOT NO THUMBS HERE, JACKASS.”
