Disturbance #155

by

Weird noises come from inside Reverend Samuel's room. The flickering light escaping under the door makes me believe the room is on fire. Chay's in there and it's on fire! I leap the rest of the stairs - but then stop dead.
It's not burning I can hear. It's chanting. Sonorous. Mystical. But I can't hear Chay.
I tread quietly to the door. Then stop, helpless. What use am I if I burst in? They'll just overpower me.
How long I stood there, I don't know. Long enough to make out Reverend Samuel's voice.
My fingernails drew blood from my palms.
