'Thanks, Argyle,' I whisper. 'That was very brave of you.'

He shrugs. 'It had to be done. If I start to feel like a hero I'll just remind myself that someone else is going to die tonight. I'm sure this suburb is full of people sleeping on their own. The Vile searches for you, but he will make do with an ordinary human for now.'

I feel so helpless cowering on my bedroom floor while some other person is about to be murdered. 'Can't we do anything? Call the police?'

But Argyle's ears have suddenly pricked up. 'What was that?'
