Marianne watched as Mephisto opened first one eye, the green one, followed by the blue one. It took a second for them to focus. When they did, they darted from side to side as if his first thought was to leap off the garden seat he was lying on and make a run for it. However in his current manifestation that wouldn’t be cool, would it?
‘Hello, Marianne. Finally tracked me down then?’
Marianne smiled and watched as Mephisto, despite himself, squirmed. ‘Oh, I’ve known where you are for a long time, Mephisto. You’re not the only one who can do disguises. Thought I’d let you suffer a while, that’s all.’
Mephisto licked a paw, feigning indifference. ‘It’s hardly suffering. I quite like it, having someone pampering me. And all I have to do is give a little affection occasionally.’
‘And pose for the camera.’
