Cold tendrils of mist fogged around my feet as I walked on the cemented path between the graves. A full moon shone on the graves and gave the mist an eerie blue color. A cat observed me from its perch atop the cross sign of a grave. It bent its head to the side and looked at me questioningly. The question in its eyes clearly said, "Where the fuck do you think you are going?"
Thankfully, I had the answer in my pocket. I took out the ziplocked plastic bag and opened it, the stench of a freshly dead mouse was no less worse than the stench of a long dead mouse. I kept the mouse corpse on the grave and the cat jumped down from its perch and calmly sauntered down towards me. Clearly ignoring the dead animal, it wrapped itself around my legs, and I obliged by picking it up. The cat rubbed its head on my jacket and I scratched it behind the ears. It looked up at me and said, "Now give me a kiss, pretty boy."
"Oh come on Maggi! Do I have to do this every time?"
"You can do it after I have had my dinner." she smirked and gestured towards the dead mouse chilling on the stone grave.
I bent my head and kissed the cat on its small wet lips.
"Ah ha!," said the cat, "as tasty as always."
"Can I go now?"
"You can but you may not."
I sighed, Maggi could be an irritating bitch sometimes.
"Please." I said.
"Ok handsome, you may proceed."
And Maggi jumped straight on the grave, bull's eye on the dead mouse and disappeared somewhere in the darkness.
I made a symbol in the air with my index finger and the portal to another dimension opened.
Fuck my luck, there was already a line of demons waiting before me.
