even with Hugh and Annette's precautions, switching cars, changing their clothes and dying their hair, a lurker stands in the shadows

Swiftly gliding over the treetops, the eternal form of the Evil Empress had followed Hugh and Annette from New York to North Carolina. Her essence was tied to the magic in the idol. The Empress always knew where her token was, so she could keep Opal from ever possessing it. That would most certainly reverse its magic and cause it to be a power for good.

Donning one of her many mortal disguises, she awaited the arrival of the couple, as she watched them pull into the hotel parking lot. Soon she said, soon it will be mine and everything will change, darkness will finally rule and I shall be its Queen.

nothing could be further from the truth, the Evil Empress, due to her lack of vision into the future, failed to see that the Dark Lord himself, having had a change of heart in the garden, was indeed the lurker in the shadows

"So we made it past Washington! The Dark Lord will never find us now!" said Hugh, as a huge triangular shadow slowly overtook their vehicle...

"EGADS!" Annette screamed at the top of her lungs. "Hugh, do you see that gigantic shadow that appears to be following our car? What in the name of all that is holy, do you think it could be? I don't know about you, but I'm feeling really apprehensive right now."

"We should get rid of this thing," Annette concluded. She rolled down her window. Even before Hugh could yell in protest, something deep inside Annette could not let go of the idol. She held it in her hand, its golden gleam seeming to travel up her arm and into her heart. This was not something that could be thrown away, even with good reason.

"Nin," thought Hugh. Anais Nin. Siana spelled backwards is Anais. Could the bohemian erotic diarist have something to do with this complicated saga?

Alas, Hugh rethought, I m probably reading much more into this than what is there. I must be tired from all this driving, and I mean alllllll this driving. What the heck was that shadow, just as he was about to exclaim that thought to Annette, he glanced over and saw that the idol which she had clutched tightly in her hand, was beginning to glow.

Without speaking a work, Hugh very calmly laid his hand on Annette's shoulder and said "Annette, I believe it would be wise for you to pull your hand back into the car. I don't know if you've noticed, but that idol is starting to glow... and I believe that is an ominous sign that the Shadow which has appeared is somehow connected to all of this." As Annette began to bring the idol closer, she realized that the Shadow had grown ominously dark.
