“I’ll admit I’m having a hard time wrapping my brain around this whole situation,” Father Thomas confessed. “Fortune telling is against God’s Law. Those powers come from Satan.”

Aaron didn’t even want to think about Good and Evil right then. His voice cut like a knife. “You’re the one who reminded me she was an ally. I don’t have a large abundance of them right now. I need to protect the ones I do have. Besides, is it God’s Law I be killed because evil found me? Was it God’s Law Kyle be killed? I didn’t seek it out. I didn’t seek this out. Jajine helped me. I don’t know her reasons for helping me, but as far as I’m concerned, she has more Good in her than anybody else I’ve met. Maybe the Bible is wrong about Fortune Tellers.”
