glowed indignantly. I cast the hood of my black robe

over my head, as to feel no guilt as the groundskeeper

watched me, and gagged in horror.

In the middle of the pentagram was chained a ram.

Beneath this goat is where my son was now buried,

soaking up the cursed magic that lingered in the soil.

I stepped towards the ram in the center of the flaming

pentagram, and produced a jagged dagger. The moon

was finally in position. I raised the dagger towards the

sky, and slowly drew it down towards Hell. When the

dagger was pointed at the floor, I raised it once more,

and slit the ram’s neck. He let out a shrill scream and

twitched a bit, then fell to floor motionless. His blood

was warm on my hands.

I sat in the middle of the pentagram, waiting for the

soil beneath me to rumble. I waited for the grey fingers

of my monster son to poke out through the dirt,

and grasp hungrily at his offering chained to the tree.

I waited, and waited…and then I cried. I couldn’t stop

crying.
