Skeptic.

“Dees bones speeeak,” she said, really playing up the part. What a freak.

“What do they say, lady?”

“Dees bones, no like ya…” her voice trailed off as her thin finger pointed at me.

“Because I don’t believe ya bones,” I replied as sarcastically as I could.

I was sick and tired of these games. I had been travelling for so long, listening to the same old crap. I tell you when I started this I believed in the supernatural. Now, I know that there is no demon magic, no ghosts, no devils and honestly, no God. Sorry but I call it as I see it and I have never seen it.

“Okay lady, your time is up and you have wasted my time. You are a fraud and not really that good at it.”

“Dees bones, be ya bones…” she kept going, her eyes rolling into her head for effect.

“Dees bones…dees bones…” I was making fun of her, but seriously, she needed to give it a rest.

When she fell back and stopped moving I was amused, then frightened. I lean in and touch her wrist. It’s cold and there is no pulse. The bitch died of a heart attack. I call emergency services and wait until they arrive. I spend an hour giving my information; this lady sure knew how to annoy me.

Finally back home I pour myself a tumbler of Glenfiddich and sit down in my comfy chair. I close my eyes, drifting off to dream of anything other than deesbones…

I was shocked out of sleep by the moist touch around my neck. It clamps down hard I can’t breathe. I try desperately to reach up and grab the thing off my neck, but I can’t. I look over to the reflection in my TV and see why. The bones have ripped away from the flesh; the bloody skeletal arms have my neck. As my head swims and lights fade I realize the truth…

Dees bones don’t like me and there is such a thing as demon magic.

Skeptic.
