An unexpected visit

Dominick laid flat on his bed staring at the ceiling. He couldn't sleep. He heard a creak on his balcony, then a shadow fell across him from the window. As he was lifting the blinds to investigate, Magdalena appeared with a FOOF!

"So! Wanna tell me why she's still here?" she demanded, furious.

"What? Who?" he whispered, horribly bewildered. "Dammit, Mag, don't ever do that."

"I thought you got rid of her for the evening. But can I turn my back on you for a second? Noooooo..." she went on, still angry. As an afterthought, she added, "And it's NOT 'Mag'."

"What the hell are you talking about?" The shadow shifted, distracting him. "I don't have time for this right now..."

As he was stating this last, a hushed voice came from the shadow.

"Dom?... Dom... you awake?"

Magdalena hovered accusingly. He grabbed the cord to raise the blind. They went up with a zipping motion that seemed to further incense the wind spirit.

"...Lin?" he whispered blankly.
