Perceive

The small girl peeked out from her hiding place, watching as a woman with a sword attacked a monster. She squealed as a heavy, grey hand dropped into her field of view.

"Nice work, love. Hopefully, that's the last of the Bunjils."

"I could do without a convention of child-eaters descending on the city. Did I miss the memo about that?"

"Maybe. I'll get this out of the way."

The child heard a dragging sound, before the door was opened by the women with the sword.

"Let's see if we can get you back to your parents, shall we?"
"I swear we run on caffeine around here."

Send them over here - the summer holidays are nearly upon us!

Having just survived one of the mid-year school holidays, I could have done with those demons too. The major holidays are an even bigger pain.

I wonder what the rates are for shipping demons and whether I can just stick them in a box or need to go through livestock transport regulations. It would be worth seeing the look on customs face when they check that box.

They'd have to have their own 'passports' - like horses and dogs. I wouldn't want to be the one checking them over for distinguishing features though!

I suppose you could tattoo their ears or something.

You could - if you didn't mind being called lefty for the rest of your life ;)
