FATHER QUINNS VISIT
Nasty and very evil Father Quinn had found out that the family were given a fifty pound reward for turning over all the found money in the flat. He approaches Patsy for money, asking where Tom is and accuses Patsy of being a harlot and assaulting her in front of the children, resulting in Megan giving him a right old kick in the knee, which turns into a stand- off with her mother.
Her mother approached her ready to land another blow on the now sobbing girl. Megan suddenly felt her neck thicken, her hackles rise, and her fangs dropping. She was looking at her beautiful mother with glowing green eyes, gold wings and tail, and the three tell-tale golden bumps on the back of her neck. But her mother was also looking at her daughter, with her fangs protruding, glowing green eyes, little gold wings and gold tail, and the three little golden bumps on the back of her neck. Megan’s brothers and sister had already run upstairs to their bedroom, fearing the worst, and closing their doors behind them. Patsy and Megan stood looking at each other seeing for the first time what had become of them both, their true selves, as they found themselves in a stand-off.
Just for one second, Megan stood looking as herself in a portal mirror. A massive electric shock went down her spine. Is this what she had to look forward to in the future? Is this what she would become? Just for that split second, an arrow of fear flew from her heart, straight towards her mother’s, and a single tear crept from the corner of her eye. Never, ever in a million years will he ever get me so that I am like her, she thought.
Patsy just stood there, reading her daughter’s thoughts, and remembering the first time that her mother had seen her in full demon. Now the circle had turned in full, and here they were, mother and daughter, standing in front of one another, eyes glaring at each other, both quiet, and both very scared!
