CHARACTERS: John and Bobby (on the phone)
WARNINGS: Not really?
“Okay, Bobby, walk me through this thing.” John checked over his chalk circle and the bowl of ingredients. This ritual should banish the spirit lingering in this place, wrapping up the case.
“You double check that circle?”
“Yes, and the ingredients, too. Now what?”
“Light it up.”
John dropped a match in the bowl. The contents went up in pungent smoke.
“Put your right foot in.” He did. “Take it back out.”
“Now put it back in and shake it all about.”
He was actually shaking his foot when he caught on.
“You’re still mad, aren’t you?”
