Chapter 4: The Silver Tongued Devil (by Kris Kristofferson)

Like all the fair maidens who've laid down beside him,
She knew in her heart that he'd lied.
Nothin' that I could have said could have saved her,
No matter how hard that she tried.
'Cos she'll offer her charms to the darkness and danger,
Of somethin' that she's never known.
And open her arms at the smile of a stranger,
Who'll love her and leave her alone.

And you know, he's the devil.
He's everything that I ain't.
Hiding intentions of evil,
Under the smile of a saint.
All he's good for is getting in trouble,
And shiftin' his share of the blame.

It was a few days after John Ellis had spoken to Ian St. John in his office. A few days since Mistress Adela had walked from his cells and disappeared without a trace, even though he had half his police force out looking for her or St. John. Still, he wasn't too concerned. The Angel's Den had been closed down and was empty, and he was sure that even if she was free, Mistress Adela wouldn't be entertaining her 'guests' on his patch again.

If there was one thing John Ellis took pride in, it was his ability in not bringing work home with him. Oh, he would tell his wife, Helen, this and that but nothing too serious. He believed he should protect her and his two children from the more violent and disturbing elements of society that existed. His son, Toby, was preparing for his 'A' levels and looking forward to going to University in the autumn, while his daughter, two years younger, was studying for her GCSE exams.
