Matt impatiently waited on Jennifer’s call. Weeks had passed since the investigation. He sat in his office contemplating everything that had happened. All this time he believed there could be nothing more than this life; there could be no heaven, no hell; nothing. He realized how wrong he had been. He still wasn’t completely convinced of things, but he certainly believed there was some kind of hell because at times he felt like he had been living in it.
Matt looked through his wallet for the business card from the Ghost Hunters. Before he found it, his phone vibrated in his pocket. He looked down at the touch screen. It was Jennifer. “This is Dr. Gregory,” he answered.
“Dr. Gregory. This is Jennifer with Midwest Ghost Hunters.”
“I was wondering if we’d ever hear from you again,” he responded curtly.
“I apologize for the delay, but the minister I needed to track down was on a missionary trip. He returned this past weekend. I discussed your situation with him and he has agreed to come to your home.”
“Good. When can we do this?” he asked anxiously.
“He said he can come tomorrow if you like. The team is going to video record the exorcism.”
“That’s fine. I just want this over with so we can get on with our lives.”
“We will also work on getting rid of the other three spirits.”
“That’s already been dealt with,” he continued. “My daughter took care of that.”
“That’s wonderful!” Jennifer exclaimed.
That evening after dinner and after Olivia went to bed, Robin and Matt sat on the porch swinging. The couple remained quiet, holding hands. Matt peered over at Robin. Behind her, he could see into the living room. Standing in the window was the large black entity. He turned his body toward it. He saw what he perceived to be its face with red, glowing, hate-filled eyes. The darkness started taking shape. The solidification caused more concern.
“You can’t have her,” he blurted out.
Robin jumped. “What?”
“She has more faith than I could ever have and that’s why you hate her. I won’t let you steal my wife.”
“It’s here isn’t it?”
