Love the Nightlife
War could sense Lady behind the door. She was probably looking through that little glass hole by now. Well, she wouldn’t be looking directly at his face, considering his head was only a mere ten inches from the ceiling. Mortals had such low ceilings nowadays. Where humans getting shorter or what?
“Special delivery of one fiery Persian for a hot night of passion, guaranteed.” The Horseman teased, “Presenting your personal boy toy; porn star quality assured.”
A heartbeat later, the door was open and Lady was flinging herself into War’s arms. She hugged him tightly, grinning with delight as she pressed her face against his shoulder.
“I hoped you might come by!” After their last outing together, Lady wouldn’t have blamed him if he’d wanted to stay away for a while. “Here, come inside!”

I need a bit of a breather after that last visit.” She smiled at him, hoping he’d understand that she didn’t blame him for what had happened with the Camazotz.
Taking a break from the supernatural world was fine with the Horseman. Truthfully, he needed a breather. He wanted a night where he would not have to worry if something could or would go wrong.
“I understand completely.” War replied with a small nod, “Besides, it would be fun to get out in the human world to see what has changed. Whatever you’d like to do… however…” He looked down at his suit of armor, tapping his chin in thought. “And I’m assuming I can’t really walk around like this unless I want to cause some heart attacks…”
