"Fuck that, man." Sam said pushing the board away and standing from his seat.
"Nah, dude, you're _not_ pussying out now. This thing cost me last week's paycheck."
Sam looked at the board for a couple of seconds.
"If I get possessed or some shit, that's on you," he finally said, returning to his seat at the table. "So, like, what do we do?"
Alex replied: "We just put a hand on the pointer-eye thing and ask it questions, then sometimes it answers, I guess."
"That's bullshit," Sam scoffed,"one of us just moves it to freak the other one out."
"Hey man, I promise not to move it if you do."
"Alright, I guess," Sam resigned.
Both stared at the eye, neither moving.
"Alright," Alex finally said, "I'll go first." He placed his fingers lightly on the eye and looked at Sam. Sam took out a blunt and lighter from his pocket and lit it.
Placing it in his mouth and puffing, he said "Fine. Let's do it."
Sam placed his fingers on the eye next to Alex's.

"Well, I mean, we _are..."_ Alex shrugged at Sam. Looking back at the board, he slid the eye over to the red _'yes'_ in the corner.
“Holy shit,” Sam said as the eye moved over the letters:
“Um,” Alex said, his voice shaking. _”A-L-E-X,”_ he began, moving the eye over each letter as he said them. He slid over to the _’&’_ symbol before starting again- _”S-A-M.”_
The board stood totally still. Sam put out his blunt and Alex gripped the table, neither one taking an eye off the Ouija board.
Finally the eye began to move again.
“No, no, that’s- that isn’t-” Alex said.
_”What the fuck, Alex!?”_ Sam said looking at Alex.
“What does- what’s that _even mean?”_ Alex said, his voice cracking and shaking.
Finally the eye stopped moving after running over the letters:
