It was a dark and stormy night. The wind howled, and thunder echoed in the distance. I had been feeling an uneasy presence in my home for weeks, and I knew I had to do something about it. I called in an exorcist, an old friend of mine from years ago, to come and help me rid the house of whatever was haunting it.
He arrived carrying a bag of strange artifacts; candles, incense, and a Bible with latin scripture. He began his ritual in my living room. He lit the candles and incense and started to chant in Latin. I watched as he moved around the room, his voice rising in pitch as he called upon the powers of the Lord.
Suddenly, a chill ran down my spine. The lights began to flicker and the candles went out. Everything was pitch black. I could feel something in the room, something evil and powerful. The only light was coming from the Bible that my friend had placed on the floor.
He began to chant louder, calling upon God to cast out the evil spirits that were in my home. I could feel them trying to resist him but he was relentless. He continued to chant until suddenly there was a loud crash and a flash of light.
The evil presence had been banished from my home and I felt a sense of relief wash over me. I thanked my friend for his help and asked him what had happened. He told me that whatever had been haunting my home had been an ancient spirit, one that had been summoned by a dark ritual many centuries ago. He said it could only be banished by one who was familiar with both Latin scripture and the power of faith.
I thanked him again and bid him farewell, but as I watched him walk away, I couldn’t help but feel a lingering dread that this would not be the last time I would have to call upon his help.
