These Are My Friends #15


"You'll change," I'd warned Jim years ago, "It'll change you, all that rubbish," but he'd laughed and said "Nonsense!" and said he'd been studying the Occult for years. Incantations, salt circles, candles, all that baloney.
So today I said "Be careful. You could unleash powers beyond your control."
"You think it's nonsense," Jim retorted, "I remember you saying so."
I had.
"Bloody nonsense!" I'd said.
But that was then.
That was before he'd cast a spell to help me believe in the Occult.
That was before he summoned the demon.
Before I became possessed.
No, he hadn't changed.
I had.

    And I thought ‘These are my friends’ again, this should be some relief fro the ‘Heat’, but is it hell? Sounds like it might be Hell. Oh dear! 👹

    Yes, why would a person change their opinions on an issue.
