Sorry I’m late. Take off your clothes. Well hello to you too. I tried to get here sooner, but today has been crazy as hell. First, my dad I haven’t spoken to in ten years… Gloria! Focus! What we’re about to do is far beyond anything or anyone you have ever known. I don’t even know why you need me for this. I’ve told you: The ceremony calls for the drummer, the two elders, the witness, and the witch. You are the witness. Without you, nothing can happen. Well, what about the others, where are they? I have it taken care of, don’t worry. If everything you say about this ritual is true, how am I not suppose to worry? Don’t get me wrong, I think a lot of your witchcraft stuff is really cool. Honestly I do, but… this is some crazy shit we’re doing here Emelyn. Whatever you’re feeling, get it out now. Because if you show any fear during the ceremony, the spirts will smell it. And when they do… What I’m feeling right now is the frustration of having not seen you for a week. God damn it! You know how long we’ve trained for this. Your mind must be absolutely focused. Do you even care to transcend this place? Emelyn… You know I want nothing more than to be like you. But sometimes I wonder if I actually matter. Besides being your fucking witness and occasional lover. You forgot to take out your earrings. No, I didn’t. They’re tied to this world, you can’t keep them in. My mother gave me these. It’s all I have left to remind me of her. You’ll have to rip them out if you don’t want me to wear them. It’s time. Witch Do you know who I am? You are the first child to my induction. You are what most people suppress throughout their entire lives. You are my shadow. Is that fear I smell? Cannot you not tell the difference between fear and anticipation? Your knowledge of me is strong. And you have a ravenous hunger to meet with your makers. I will succeed with you, give me the final trial. The Coalition right: you must first summon the elders to sanctify your body. Only then, will the spirits accept you. Then let it be. I do not fear you. Don’t leave me! Take me with you.
