Well, time to meet her. I held the gem in my hand, turned toward the center of my room, and invoked it. A moment later, she stood in the center of the room.
She was a slim woman, with blonde hair to about the middle of her back, and covered head to foot in white fur. She had cat’s ears poking up through that hair, and a white tail in back. Her blue eyes gave her a Siamese appearance. She seemed to be in her twenties, though it was hard to tell under all that fur.
She looked around my room uncertainly. “Wh—what happened? Where am I?”
“You’re in my room,” I said. “Hi, I’m Belinda. Who’re you?”
“Katherine,” she said. “Katherine Haus.”
I giggled. “Cat house?”
She rolled her eyes. “It’s not funny.” Then she caught sight of herself in the mirror over my dresser. “…but it might be appropriate. What happened to me?”
“You’ve been enchanted.” I held up the catseye. “With this.”
Her eyes widened. “That gem—” She stopped. “Omigod. I…belong to you, don’t I?”
I nodded. “I’m afraid so.”
