<s id="selena-meets-mephiqoleth" title="Selena Meets Mephiqoleth">
+[Selena goes to the kitchen smiling, opens the refrigerator's door and takes
+out some refreshmeats and arranges them on the table and then she opens
+a cupboard's door only to discover a small human like demon inside.]
+Selena: why, hello there! I guess you did not RSVP.
+Selena: judging by the recent happenings, I guess that's me.
++++: so what do you shall I write on your name tag?
+Mephiqoleth: MY NAME IS MEPHIQOLETH.
+Selena: oh. Is it Emm, Ee, Pee...
+Mephiqoleth: it is written in Leshon Haqodesh.
+Selena: “Leshon Haqodesh”? The holy tongue? You mean:
+Mephiqoleth: YES!!!… HEBREW! [Non-dramatically] I am Jewish.
+Selena: Jewish? But you're not human.
+Mephiqoleth: THERE ARE JEWS OF MANY SPECIES.
+Selena: really? That's great - can I have a Jewish lady cat? I want one
+so she can mother cute little Jewish kittens.
+[Cut to Mephiqoleth - he is not amused.]
+Selena: you are not amused, demons are never amused. I should have known
++++: anyway, what is it you want from me?
+Mephiqoleth: MAGEIA, YOU ARE NOW EIGHT AND TEN YEARS OLD - YOU ARE NOW A
+Selena: so I've suddenly become a woman at 18? I'm only one day older than
+yesterday, and I had my period for many years now, and…
+Mephiqoleth: YOU MUST TEST ME! I POSSESS POWERFUL MYSTICAL POWERS, AND YOU
+MUST SEE IF THEY ARE POWERFUL ENOUGH FOR YOU.
+Selena: they are. I believe you.
+Mephiqoleth: NOT SO QUICKLY. MY GREATEST MYSTICAL POWER, WHICH FEW OTHER DEMONS
+POSSESS IS MY TELEPORTATION ABILITY. I CAN TELEPORT YOU ANYWHERE.
+Selena: you can? Like where?
+Mephiqoleth: ANYWHERE YOU WANT!
+Selena: OK… well, I'm feeling adventurous, so I want the crème-de-la-crème,
+the cat whiskers, the face that launched a thousand ships…
+Mephiqoleth: YOU DO NOT MEAN… <b>THE AMBER!</b>.
+Selena: yes, the Amber. The Amber being…
+Mephiqoleth: …THE MYSTICAL CENTRE OF THE UNIVERSE AND BEYOND.
+Mephiqoleth: YOU WILL LIKELY NOT SURVIVE THE AMBER.
+Selena: just one thing, can you please wait with teleporting me to
+<b>the Amber</b> until Spring break, so I can get ready and safely
+Mephiqoleth: OF COURSE, I AM TIMELESS. FAREWALL, MAGEIA, I SHALL MEET YOU
+AGAIN DURING THIS SO-CALLED ”SPRING BREAK“ WHEN YOU ARE MORE PREPARED. UNTIL
+[Mephiqoleth fades away into thin air leaving Selena amused.]
+Selena: well, I suppose a one way trip to the Amber is also a fine Birthday
+Jessica’s voice from the main hall: Selena, is everything OK, why aren't you
+coming back? Don't you want some cake.
+Selena: yes, sorry, I'm coming, I'm coming. [She takes the trays and leaves
