Sample text

Die Chancen standen ziemlich gut, dass ich am nächsten Morgen blaue Flecke an den Knien haben würde. Tja. Ich hatte außerdem den schwarzen Gürtel in Judo und machte Fortschritte in Kenpo, einer Art des Karate, wo es weniger auf Kraft und mehr auf Balance ankommt. Ich war auf die unzivilisierten Stadtgebiete so gut es ging vorbereitet. Natürlich laufe ich normalerweise nicht wie ein Lockvogel durch die Gegend. Mein Rock war so kurz, dass selbst die Stiefel, die bis zur Mitte der Oberschenkel reichten, noch drei Zentimeter bis zum Rocksaum frei ließen.

Ich erwischte dort jemanden am Telefon, der meine Stimme nicht kannte und nicht glauben wollte, dass ich Anita Blake war, Jean-Claudes gelegentliche Freundin, wie derjenige sich ausdrückte. Also musste ich die anderen Etablissements anrufen. Ich versuchte es im Guilty Pleasures, seinem Strip-Club, aber da war er auch nicht, dann im Danse Macabre, seinem neusten Unternehmen. Dabei fragte ich mich allmählich, ob er sich verleugnen ließ. Der Gedanke machte mir einiges aus. Ich hatte immer befürchtet, Richard könnte mir nach der langen Wartezeit den Laufpass geben, weil er genug von meiner Unentschlossenheit hatte.

Dann war Jean-Claude am Apparat, und ich hatte Mühe, meine metaphysischen Schilde hochzuhalten. Dieses metaphysische Zeug ging mir gegen den Strich. Die Biologie des Übernatürlichen ist und bleibt Biologie, aber Metaphysik ist Magie, und damit kann ich mich nach wie vor nicht anfreunden. Sechs Monate lang hatte ich in meiner Freizeit meditiert und war bei Marianne, einem sehr klugen Medium, in die Lehre gegangen. Sie brachte mir die rituelle Magie bei, damit ich meine gottgegebenen Fähigkeiten beherrschte, und dadurch konnte ich mich gegen die Zeichen, die mich an Richard und Jean-Claude banden, abschotten.
