The province was going to bear down on both of them for disrupting a Department of Paranormal Research and Defense investigation, on top of everything else.
Besides, Gibby had a great deal of dirt on those two as well.
Wilbur, Sammy, and Dom finally returned to Seechertown after a whole night of driving.
It was past ten in the morning when they arrived at Sealake Island, where Wilbur told Sammy and her brother to get some rest until Wilbur got to breaking Sammy’s curse at night.
However, Sammy could not wait any longer, and Wilbur had no choice but to relent under the siblings‘ begging
Wilbur brought both of them to his room. He sat down on the couch before saying, “Have you thought this through? I’m going to need to enter your consciousness and spirit with my spirit energy if I’m going to break your curse. All your secrets and memories will be exposed to me. Are you absolutely sure about this?”
“I’m sure. I don’t have anything to hide. I just hope you can break my curse, sir.” Sammy had made up her mind that she was going to get her curse broken no matter what. She had suffered enough.
Wilbur nodded, but Dom piped up worriedly. “Sir, are you saying that Sammy’s spirit might be damaged? What are the consequences if that happens?”
“She might lose her mind or worse.”
Wilbur’s words scared the wits out of Dom and Sammy, and Sammy’s initial determination was beginning
to waver a little.
However, Wilbur flashed a smile. “Don’t be too worried. I’m just saying there’s a risk. I’m pretty sure the curse isn’t too powerful, so it should be fine.”
Both brother and sister heaved a sigh of relief, and Sammy nodded her head in agreement to proceed
Dom nodded as well. There was not much point in living a cursed life.
Wilbur said, “Well, I’m going to get to it now. Dom, you can wait outside.”
Dom nodded. He did not understand much but knew that he would only be a bother if he stayed there.
Wilbur called Sammy to his bedroom and pointed to his bed. “Lie down.”
Sammy blushed but did as she was told.
“Relax Just imagine you’re going to sleep, and everything’s going to be fine when you wake up.” Before Sammy could respond, Wilbur tapped her on the forehead. A wave of spirit energy entered her body and Sammy fell unconscious at once.
Just then, Wilbur muttered a few chants. A barrier formed around the room at once, blocking it completely from the outside world.
Upon doing this, spirit energy surged forth from Wilbur’s body as he entered Sammy’s consciousness.
The next second, Wilbur was enveloped in endless darkness.
The only visible thing in this darkness was a faint red glow in the center, surrounded by some silvery wisps of light drifting around.
This darkness was Sammy’s consciousness, and the red glow was the flame of her spirit. The wisps of silvery light were her spirit energy.
That was just the consciousness of a regular human being, and everyone looked slightly different according to their conditions.
Just then, Wilbur’s presence came up to Sammy’s spirit flame.
The flame was only the size of a palm, swaying slightly.
Upon closer inspection, there was a thin gray fog swirling around the flame. That was the curse Sammy was under, and Wilbur’s task was to take that gray fog out and destroy it.
Standing still in front of the spirit flame, Wilbur reached out and began to touch Sammy’s spirit. At the same time, all of Sammy’s memories hidden in her spirit surged toward Wilbur.
Wilbur smiled. Just then, the fog seemed to sense a threat as it detached itself from Sammy’s spirit flame and lashed out at Wilbur.
