John’s eyes close and he waits for the death blow, but instead there’s a buzzing noise on the other side of the door behind him, and the door falls open. John falls with it, sprawled on his back, and a woman stands above him – he can’t make out her features in the dark, but she’s definitely a woman – she grabs his hand and hauls him to his feet.
“Run!” she shouts.
“Will I love you?” He calls after her, jumbling his pronouns as her hand touches the door handle. He can’t think, can’t move, can’t care that all of his clothes are still on the floor.
She smiles at him over her shoulder, bright and shining and mystifying and fantastic. “Don’t you already?”
She walks out of his life and into his future.

“Oh, you’re wonderfully feisty. We’re going to have so much fun, Belle.”
“That’s Ms. De Jour to you, Master.”
