Security Code

Harold tapped in the security code and opened the lid of the steel plated box. There was little inside – if he'd hoped to find the demon's heart it wasn't here – just a couple of files (one on himself and one on his mum) and several vials of blood, individually labelled with the donor and date of collection. He was particularly pleased to see his half-brother Cain's blood, dated 84 AC (After Creation).

He pulled out the files and read his own. If he was disappointed by the blank space in the death due' column he didn't show it, but his gaze flickered to his mother's file more than once.

He close the lid ten minutes later, wondering if Jasfoup had intended him to find out. Using your birthdate as the code wasn't very sophisticated, but then who had a birth year of 1432?

Really? He doesn't look that old!

Now if Jasfoup had put a bottle of scotch in there - I wonder if it would be just straight sugar by now or completely solidified. Hmmm..

He wears well :)

Interesting thought about the whisky.

It was, and now Harold knows it.
