So the foursome ended up going back into the house—but Seven was reluctant to cross the threshold—sensing his presence would attract Faye's attention. He knew he attracted trouble.

"Come on, " Eva urged him in.

But he could not budge an inch.

His throat seized up like a sieve.

His face fell pale—and his mouth dried up. He tried to fight against it.

As hard as he pushed—he could not move his feet. This was not his best day.

Seeing his distress, Eva stepped back across the threshold to try and comfort him. She held his arm warmly.

"Babe ...? What is the matter?"

Finally, he felt his jaw unlock and slacken—and he managed to mutter: "Nothing ... I … I just felt nauseous."

"Okay, do you want to just go home instead then? I will tell them you aren't feeling well either and we can both go."

"No—I'm fine, " he said, determined to keep his demeanor cool and casual from now on. He put on a fast face.

Then, despite lingering trepidation, he stepped into the house—pushing down all nagging fears. Faye was not a God.

But no matter how positive-minded he stayed—he secretly knew that he was triggering Fate by recklessly marching right back into the den of the Huntress.

They made tea and started a game of cards—when they heard a shrill neighing outside. All four of them shook.

"Is that Darkhoof?" Eva inquired.

Aly nodded. "We call him Red now."

Olin put his cards face down and rubbed his temples. The horse was always interrupting their lives to no end.

Dark Red continued to neigh into the wind, like Hell were raining down—like Death were riding in. It had awakened.

"Will he be okay? Should we check on him?" Eva asked, but she was afraid. She was nervously trying to soften things.

"He's likely just seen a coyote. It always sets him off, " Olin reassured Eva. "He will calm down in a bit." He nodded.

"We never even notice it anymore, " Aly added. "Except when company is over. It is so embarassing." She fidgeted.

"Does he ever get out of the barn?""Sometimes … We caught him over at Morrissey's just last week, actually … But it's only when the mood takes him. Then he will just jump stall and bust out."

"He's been a hard horse to keep, ever since the … accident, " Olin said. "Personally, I think he just longs to be free … Some animals can't be tamed a

er gaze into the crazy mirror once more—only to see the Silverskin grappling Aly in close—entwining her with Her evil black strands.

Meanwhile, beside them in the tub, Seven went on wailing to the threshold of his lungs—still allowing himself to be burned alive by the fire—as Olin slapped his face to break him from his mesmerism.

The Silverskin then dropped into reality—landing with two feet on the floor—and began devouring Eva from the head down—blood spurting everywhere—as She hungrily feasted—and life sapped from Eva's convulsing body. She ate Herself.

She gorged Herself—crushing Eva's flesh and bone under powerful jaws—stuffing the corpse into her belly—until Her abdomen bloated like a snake. She had now feasted upon the body of Her host. Now, as she was being eaten alive, Eva had blacked out well before being totally devoured by Faye, which then in turn soon banished Faye once more, and returned Eva right back to the living land.

The Silverskin disappeared all at once, leaving Eva standing there dizzy but unhurt, as if nothing at all had even happened—and she promptly leaned lightly into Aly's arms. Just then, as well, Olin now pushed Seven fully underwater, desperately hoping that if he totally submerged his brother—the blue flames might be finally fully snuffed from light.

"Please ... Olin, " Seven begged in lifeless breaths each time Olin pulled him up for air. "Just get out of here ... She'll come for you … when She's done with me. When She's done with me, Olin … She will come for you. She will not stop until ..."
