I was surrounded by darkness. No sounds. No lights. No temperature. Just a darkness. I was aware I was thinking, which made things a little easier. Although, only slightly.

The darkness began to fade. The sounds began to return. I noticed the sound of running water. I blinked to clear my vision.

Relieved, I was in the Bathroom. Everything was back to how it was. Normality returned!

‘Until next time’ Aplaxa’s voice echoed around me, although this time I wasn’t exactly sure where from.

I may leave it a little while before my next spell… concentrate on my experiments instead…


And that’s it for another year! Halloween’s all done and dusted. Things will be back to normal from tomorrow. Whatever that is, I hasten to add!

Hope you’ve had a good Hallowe’en!
