[SURPRISE! The camera shakes a bit, showing a view of the window in Mae's room, and the closet next to it. The closet rattles, and a muted moan can be heard from it.
She turns the camera to herself. She looks like...she hasn't slept for a few straight days; she joy and mischief's gone from her eyes. Instead, there's anger and fear and tiredness.] Who wished for a zombie apocalypse for Christmas?
[Another rattle from the closet, and its subsequent moan has her closing her eyes with a pained expression.] That's my mother. I used to think she had it in for me, but now she really does, and - [Her voice chokes.] What am I supposed to do? Aim the gun for her heart? I can't - I just -
[Another rattling noise, then the sound of wood breaking, ripped apart from the inside.] Damn - okay. [She starts to take a calming breath before turning to face her demons, except the shadow that falls on her has Mae spinning around quickly.
And there they are. Floating at her window, gaunt and decaying and decadent; her actual demons. Liannan with her red, red hair and her ice-like skin, and Anzu with his hand held out and pressed against the glass.]
Let us in, Mae.
[The last image after that is Mae reaching behind her for the gun, the device getting knocked over and shutting off just in time with the sound of window shattering.]
[ooc; FUN TIME IN THE APARTMENT! For others interested in Mae's ghouls, - if you want them to have seen them - there's her mother (use your imagination for her aspect), AND THEN THERE ARE THE FUNNY ONES: Anzu and Liannan, both demons (Liannan's name might ring a bell to others) of the incubus/sucubus tendencies. In Mae's world, demons enter your dreams in the forms of people you want. If you let them in, they mark you. If you let them in three times, voluntarily, they've got an open door on possessing your body, fooling around town a bit, then leaving you like a vegetable. See? Fun.]
