Her human appearance dissolved in a fluctuation of warped space, flesh wavering and twisting as if she were made of nothing but colored smoke. A wash of light exploded around her as her wings unfolded. Verlaine blinked, holding—for a strange and disorienting moment—Evangeline’s dual selves in his vision, the surface illusion of a woman and the underlying reality of the winged creature.
