She sneers at the slime ruining her shoes. The fourth demon in as many nights is staring at her, menacingly, from a few metres off.
"Are you doing something, or can I go home and get out of the shoes you just trashed, you ridiculous xenomorph wannabe?"
When it roars, she learns, it spews more slime. "That's ooky," she whines, pulling a dagger out of her purse. "I just wanted to have a night out, y'know? Nothing weird, just go to a friend's birthday party. Do you know what a birthday party is?"
The demon starts to circle her and she glances around. "The one time there's not a bunch of people milling around is the time it'd be helpful. Look, whatever I did, I'm sorry. I don't want to fight you. I know you don't want to fight me; I'm just a girl. I'm not even a Slay--"
A gun shot cuts her off and the demon crumples to the ground.
