    It seemed so simple. All Daniel had to do was chop up a few ingredients and add them to the soup of puke green goop simmering on the stove-top. His wife had left very specific, step-by-step instructions written in her flowing handwriting. The spell was a short one and once everything was chopped and mixed he could get back to watching the game. But magic is never simple and Daniel was about to have a very bad day.

    Daniel found out that bad magic is the same as black magic. The spell that he and Atonia (his wife) had planned to cast against his ex-wife backfired and came upon him.

    A burning, itching sensation started in his nose and traveled down his throat. At first, Daniel thought it was nothing more than the start to an epic sneeze, but after a minute he began to panic. The feeling entered his lungs and he began to cough hard, breathes coming in short gasps. His throat was closing up. God, what had he done?

    God help me! I'm afraid I have stirred up more than a hornet's nest. My lungs sound like a rattle snake's death warning rattle!

    Daniel struggled to pull his cell phone out of his jean pocket, fingers shaking, and he pushed speed dial 1. After one ring his wife's calm voice answered.

    "Hello, honey."

    "N-need. I need h-help," he stuttered as his body convulsed, sending him to the tiled floor.

    A dark mass began to vomit forth from his mouth, tasting like cremated remains. The putrid smell of the forgotten slime mold concoction left boiling permeated even within Daniel's paralyzed psyche. The itching sensation began to increase in intensity as hundreds of little bumps began to form and move around just under the surface of his flesh. Daniel's eyes grew wide in horror as he watched the obsidian pool collided with the agitated pea soup ichor. All Daniel could hear was a deep, demonic laugh initiate from somewhere within.

    Struggle all you want, human, but it will not benefit you.

    The voice was coming from inside his head. Daniel shuddered and vomited once more.

    Such a fragile creature, you are.

    A demonic laugh echoed between his fractured thoughts.

    Daniel whimpered in fear, but there was nothing he could do as his senses had grown dull; he couldn’t feel the floor he lay curled in a ball on or any part of his body. After what felt like hours, in his clouded state Daniel faintly heard the front door slam against the wall as it was swung open, he hoped it was Atonia coming to rescue him from the hell that his body had become.

    "Sweetheart," Antonia's dulcet voice purred in his ear.

    "H-Help m-me," Daniel begged between whimpers of pain and fear.

    "Tsk, tsk." His wife clicked her tongue. "Now, honey, why would I do that when I was the one who orchestrated this?"

    "W-wha?"

    His chest convulsed, vision turning black.

    As Daniel succumbed to the utter blackness of unconsciousness, he heard his spouse cackling with glee.
