He looks up.

 

"Hi! I'm Nelyafinwë Maitimo."

Permalink

The demon blinks at him. He glances at the circle. "Did you summon me?"

Permalink

"Ah, no, Timothy did. I'm not supposed to do summoning yet because I might mess it up!"

Permalink

"Ah-huh. Who's Timothy?" asks the demon. He has a tail, longer and whippier than Cam's; it lashes.

Permalink

Mental image! "You can send him a letter." He stands up and wobbles over and offers an address label.

Permalink

The demon - twitches, but even when Maitimo extends his hand over the border of the circle that's all he does. ...He takes the address label in his claws; he has claws.

Permalink

Claws seem less useful than hands but there're Eagles who like it.

The car zooms along after him on the floor. He giggles at it.

Permalink

The demon rolls his eyes. He sticks the label on a piece of paper and starts writing.

Permalink

That is a reasonable thing to do! People who get summoned might be scared they will be stuck. He would be very scared if he thought he might be stuck. 

Permalink

"Why'd this Timothy person leave you in a room with the circle?" wonders the demon.

Permalink

"This place is called Milliways and time passes differently in different parts. It might have been a week for Timothy since he drew your circle, or something. He didn't leave me here but he didn't say not to go, either. I guess if he'd messed up the circle something bad could happen but Cam did it and Cam's good at circles and nothing very bad could happen, I'm an Elf."

Permalink

"Yeah, I can see that." He makes a chair and plops into it, curling his tail down around his leg.

Permalink

The car goes zipping around the room spelling things in swoopy tengwar. "If you want to go home he'll send you home. If you were worried about that."

Permalink

"Then why summon me?"

Permalink

"He can send you home with this thing we have for travelling between dimensions so you're home but you're still tech-nic-al-ly on a summons so you can't murder people but you can go live a nice normal life in Hell. Unless murdering people is really important for you being happy? Maybe there are some Elves who would volunteer, if you couldn't be happy otherwise."

Permalink

"...what?"

Permalink

"Which part?"

Permalink

"Nothing about that makes sense."

Permalink

"The Elves found a way to travel between the Elf world and the Earth you know. And then it turned out there were more worlds than just those two, so now they are exploring for new worlds. And their way of travelling between worlds can be used to send you home to Hell without dismissing the summons, if you'd rather that than stay here."

...The demon reads the binding over again in more detail.

Permalink

That's reasonable. He hasn't said anything at all about murder being bad because they are not friends yet and you shouldn't tell humans that things they're doing are bad until you are friends with them.

Permalink

"Ugh," the demon says of this binding when he has finished reading it.

Permalink

"What's wrong?"

Permalink

"Should've left the summons alone."

Permalink

"What were you hoping it would be?"
