“All I want for Christmas is to live”
It’s Christmas Eve, and during one of her first few podcasts, Thea gets a caller who is being hunted by a Vampire as he tries to make his way home to his family.
L1 Thea(Pronounced “Thee-Ahh)
It’s Christmas Eve, and you’re listening to me, Thea, on Witchcast! People have been asking me why, if I am a “real” Witch, I am doing this public show?
I want to help people who have no one to talk to, or turn to, who are caught in the danger of a supernatural threat.
So, against all tradition of my own kind-Witches, I have elected to do something about that.
And yes, I am a real Witch, but I don’t ride broomsticks, have no warts on my nose, (or anywhere else!)
If you have had any dangerous contact or suspect you have, with Ghosts, Were-creatures, Vampires, Demons or more, call me at 1-888-witchcast!
**We hear the phone**
Thank you for calling, you’re talking to Thea!
**Sounding out of breath and afraid**
I don’t know if you’re the real thing–but I tried the Police and they think I’m drunk or pranking them!
Okay, calm yourself caller, what’s your name and what’s going on?
My name is Ross– I went to the mall in Nightvale to get a late present for my pregnant wife–Oh god! I gotta keep moving while I talk! The thing is near, he’s hunting me!
What’s near? Who is hunting you?
A Vampire! I think– I was headed to my car, i heard someone trying to cry for help in a dark corner near the Mall!
I saw a Man ripping some poor guy’s throat open with his teeth–blood was gushing everywhere! He saw me looking at him and dropped the dude, started coming for me!
Okay, stay calm! I’m googling the area…there’s a church 2 blocks from there on brooke street! You think you can reach it?
**sound of him breathless and running**
I tried 911! They threatened to arrest me for pranking them! I shouldn’t have said Vampire!!
I’m going to try and send guardian spirits to help you!! I–i don’t know if it will work since I don’t know exactly where you are!!
**The incantation is reverbed/echo in this as she says the words**
tueri a lamia RECENS!!
What did you say?
Lamia means “Vampire” In Latin. I attempted to summon spirits that will try and find you and protect you!
I see something–they look like misty glowey people…they’re headed in the wrong direction! They’re flying away from here not towards!!
Shit! How far are you from the Church?
L16 I–i can see it! Oh shit! I also saw him! He spotted me, he was at the end of the street, now he’s running towards me!
You can make it! If you can enter that church, on this of all nights, the vampire won’t be able to follow you in!
I’m inside!! Oh God, I made it! I see him now..he stopped outside..he…what the hell is he doing…
Stay calm! You are safe now! And among people!
No..there’s no one here but a priest. He’s on a cell phone, looking at me.
I’m sure it’s fine. Go tell him you were being chased by a mugger and need the police to come.
Wait…the Vampire–he’s on his cell too. This is odd.
What? He is? That’s very odd…he should be getting away from there.
Father, can you call the Police? I was being chased and had to…
I know, son. Did anyone see you come in?
I don’t think so. But the guy is still outside.
Good. I am very sorry my son.
**Hissing bestial sound**
OH GOD! He’s a Vampire too!! NO!!!
The sound of screams and biting and bestial sounds
NO!! How can he be? He’s in a church!
“In the name of the Father, the son, and the holy spirit, may you rest in peace.”
Hello, whoever you are, young lady. Forget what you think you heard here–no one would believe you anyway.
If you are his wife, I’m afraid he won’t be home for the holidays.
Merry Christmas my child.
Silence for a few seconds
Oh God…oh God.
