I never could understand why he kept the creature, nor what pleasure he found in shutting himself up in his room with this surly, vicious beast.

Before I could move she flattened her belly to the ground, crouched, trembled, and sprang into his face. Howling and foaming they rolled over and over on the floor, scratching and clawing, until the cat screamed and fled under the cabinet, and Mr. Wilde turned over on his back, his limbs contracting and curling up like the legs of a dying spider.

Max!' Nudge cried, rushing over to hug me. Her thin arms gripped me tight, and I hugged her back, scratching her wings where they joined her shoulders, the way she liked. 'We were so worried-I didn't know what had happened to you, and we didn't know what to do, and Fang said we going to eat rats, and-'
'Okay, okay. Everything's okay,' I told her. I met Fang's eyes over her shoulder and mouthed rats? silently. A flicker of a grin crossed his lips and then was gone.

— James Patterson
