SFFS

Another Part of Chapter 3 of Firstborn.

Enjoy the banter between a wizard and his cat.


“Will you stop lecturing me? First you hit me on the head and now you lecture me,” I moaned as I grabbed the soda can and pressed against my forehead. 
“You hit yourself. And stop using regular junk as channels. Breaking stuff is not in your best interest; you’re already behind on your rent,” Amaymon continued, clearly enjoying himself.
“It was a critical situation,” I replied weakly.
“Critical, my tail.”
“Amaymon, you’re an immortal demon trapped in a cat’s body. Are you really gonna bitch about the rent?”

  2. Cats are disagreeable no matter WHAT resides in that furry skin.

  3. The set-up alone piqued my interest. The cat's tone cracked me up (though it makes sense considering it's a demon), but the last line is golden. :)

  4. A wizard and a demon cat arguing about the rent - How isn't that literary gold? "My tail!" - great line.

  5. I can picture this cat in a sort of "Shrek" character kind of way. Great stuff.

  6. May be a demon is a cat's body, but it sure knows how to act like a cat.

    Great line... and somehow, I bet the answer is yes. Yes, he is gonna bitch. :D

    I second Ann's comment - you come up with the coolest lines. Love it!

  10. Went back and read last week's snippet - love them both. Cats (and demons) can be extraordinarily supercilious. Amaymon may be demonic, but he's thoroughly feline. A really good sequence!
