The doorbell made Lilith’s eyes roll in exasperation. Another door to door missionary? She was busy! She had no time for this. She pulled open the door ready to bark her displeasure, then simply stared and gawked at the tall lithe form on her doorstep.
“Um, Hi. I was given a plane ticket and told to show up here for some deep research, and that someone named Lilith would know what I’m supposed to do? Er, I’m a grad student from Michigan State University…” He trailed off, looking lost and confused.
She smiled, pulled him inside and slammed the door.
