Mystique did not slept well that night. She was still awake when, two hours after she and Fred had finally gotten Todd back into bed, Azazel let himself into her room. She kept her eyes closed when she heard him come in, feigning sleep.
She listened to him undressing in the dark, the soft twin thunks of the heels of his shoes bumping against the wall as he lined them out neatly beside the dresser, then a heavier metallic thud as he laid something on the dresser's top.
