Dead Rite chapter 163.09

Sefskapoi grimaced. “That's a bit gruesome, isn't it? Do that make a habit of that where you come from?”

“Not really. It took a lot of setting up, actually. We had to take a mortal all the way to Hell.”

“A mortal in Hell?” Raised eye ridges. “Is that even allowed?”

“I wouldn't want it bandied about or anything.” Jasfoup gazed at a calendar absently, seeming to gaze through the picture of a ferry on the crossing to Skye and past the clouds to Heaven. “It was an interdenominational affair, like putting a bottle of holy water in a condom.”

Harold cleared his throat with a cough. “I hate to interrupt your reminiscing but we have a job to do and I, for one, would like to get home before dark and get a head start on dinner.”

“A head start on dinner?” Sefskapoi's eyebrows raised even further. “Do you eat that much?”
