A glowing, orange man-shape swept into the bedroom. “Ah, there you are.”

She yelped and fell back onto the bed. “How the hell did you get in here?”

“No mere lock will keep me at bay.” The glow brightened, illuminating him. His skin was red, and long, curved horns jutted from his head. His feet were cloven, his thighs covered in fur. His loincloth had caught-up on the worn leather pouch around his waist. He was naked underneath.

He followed her gaze and flipped the loincloth back into place. “It is frigid in here. Shrinkage is to be expected.”
