It's nearly two in the morning here. Mia, Lou and I are standing in an abandonned basketball court. The place had been used by drug dealers to push to kids and eventually had been locked out when the youth center to which it belonged closed.
I trace with chalk the figures the book said while Mia and Lou watch nervously. They must think I'm taking this way too seriously. I've been at it for quite a while as I want to avoid fucking up the spell should it work.
When i'm done, I hand the book back to Mia.
"Ready for this?" I ask
"Not really... I still have no Idea if it'll work." She answers
"It will. I saw what you did, you aren't going crazy. You can make this work."
She nods and fiddles with the items we threw together in the last few days since we planned this. She's wearing a large robe, kind of like a monk's robe actually. On the floor, we setted a small altar down, a table cloth, a knife, a silver cup from Lou's father's stuff, a pentacle I ordered and a branch I sculpted into a staff/wand shape.
She's trembling in nervousity so I get behind her and massage her shoulder and whisper encouraging words to her. "We practised this, we'll do good."
"I know, but I can't help to be nervous, what if we succed, then what?"
"We'll just see. I can protect you, don't worry." I affirm.
She sighs and breathe deeply a few times. She gives us the signal and we spread spread in a triangle around the summoning area.
Mia begins the chant she learned by heart as to not make any mistake, calling something from beyond this world into the world. She speaks sacred names and formulaes to acchieve this.
It takes half an hour for the whole operation and when she finishes, nothing happens... I'm about to speak when a faint red light shine on the circle's surface.
Without any form of transition, the binding circle now held a beings... The creature ressemble a centaur as it's lower body was that of a horse but instead of a man's upper torso, it was a Lion's...
"I BE VINÉ, GREAT KING OF HELL, I ANSWER TO THYNE SUMMONING O CONJUROR!"
Mia mumbled her answer, her eyes as wide as a two dollar coin. I pushed her in the ribs. for her to speak.
"Thank you spirit for answering my call..."
"STATE THYNE REQUEST!"
She looked at us, scared as well, hell.
"Ask him who the specter who hunts us is." Lou whispered.
"I demand that you reveal the name of the one who threatens my friends."
"THE TORN SOUL THAT THEE SPEAK OF HAS BEEN NAMED CARLOS SANSON." The demons replied.
"Thank you. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated."
"AS THEE ART SATISFIED, I DEMAND MY PAYMENT."
"Payment?" Mia asked, looking at Lou then me.
"A VIRGIN IS MY DEMAND AN I ASK FOR THYNE. TO MATE AN CREATE A CHILD OF FLESH AND SPIRIT." The demon demanded.
"I'm not a virgin! I've had sex before." Mia stated, insulted.
"THEE HAVE NOT KNOWN THE EMBRANCE OF MAN."
"Oh come on! Even then, I'm not letting you touch me."
"THEE DARE BREAK THE PACT?" The spirit lashed out, his voice becoming cavernous and filled with fury.
The creature lashed against the invisible wall that stood upon the chalk lines surrounding it, striking at them, creating colorful sparks. After a few hits, the wall broke into translucent shards and the creature left it's confine. As the barrier was destroyed, Mia clutched her head and feel on her knees.
We were fucked...
