Prayers

“I don’t want to share you with anyone.” said Lem last summer…

But Lacey doesn’t know if he’s a ghost or a demon. Or if God is allowing it or not.

There are two kinds of teaching on the matter in Christianity. Both seem false to Lacey. She tries to discuss her frustrations with God. One is far to permissive the other seems…also deceptive and evil.

“My uncle was the president of his fraternity in the late 50’s or early 60’s.” says Lacey through telepathy.

(This is factually accurate about Lacey’s uncle.)

“Mmmm. No! No. You’re lying. No he wasn’t. No.” says Cable-dude.

Cable-dude, should he exist inspired the haters on Instagram in the perfume community. He organized demonic herds to give them ideas and suppress the truth about Lacey’s identity and real social-class position from coming out in her writing. He used the Illuminati to destroy her first account. To hurt her. And he loves to interrupt her conversations with ghosts he’s had conjured. Like Lem.

“He was gay!!!” said in a million gaslighting, aggressive and otherwise abusive ways.

The living Kennedy’s aren’t sure. They’ve said that they wouldn’t be surprised if he was straight. They seem to have confusing feelings on the matter. …And while they-

“Despised!” shrieks Cable-dude.

…Disliked the idea at first they’ve realized that it’s weird-

“You’re schizophrenic!” shrieks Cable-dude.

…It’s weird to assume Joe Jr. didn’t find his soulmate and try make something of what was left. And as he’s their uncle they still want him to find happiness. If he can.

“I hate you!” shrieks Cable-dude.

“Is he really that obsessed?!” asks Lem of fellow ghosts and angels in Purgatory about Cable-dude.

Demons cause chaos in Lacey’s life. Her ex starts laughing, a kid is screaming, the music is all wrong, and a man outside is yelling. She wants to process reality but she’s being psychically psychotically interrupted?

“See! That’s why they say not to mess with us!” says his (seemingly) former mistress.

“He’s still in love with her!” someone observes about Cable-dude to another Illuminati member.

“Aww! She’s so lucky! I bet she loves that!” says another Illuminati member.

“I don’t lov-“ Lacey tries to communicate.

“She’s evil for not loving him!” says a female Illuminati member.

“If you guys keep terrorizing my every breathing moment like this more bad stuff is going to happen. And don’t assume I’m not being allowed to talk to spiritual entities by God without your ability to control it.”

“Ouch!” yells one of her children. A demon just pushed her child over and now they’re crying.

And one morning something asked her, “Do you still want to protect the Kennedy’s?”

And since the two brothers had been aggravated to attack her…and it genuinely hurt…she answered no. Two of them died within months.

“We can’t stop him.” an Illuminati member lies.

Why?

Because if they stop him it ruins it. It ruins their façade.

“No. We should just try killing you again for the hundredth time.” says an Illuminati member.

“It’s funny how everyone hates my family but they ignore how complicit so many other institutions are. They ignore how profoundly evil it is to attack you.” says Michael.

“And make it impossible for me to sort out my feelings in your head so you can understand how much I love you.” says Lem.

“You’re Jack!” screams a demon.

“He was gay!” screams another demon.

“I’m going to get you!” says Cable-dude.

“Oh my gosh! I’m so sad! I’m going to drink bleach!” says his wife trying to be a mean girl because from the start she’s pretended to be wounded to gain sympathy.

“I’m worried she actually will kill herself in one last ploy to get sympathy.” says Lacey.

“I highly doubt that.” says Mary the ghost.

“That can’t be her!!” shrieks an Illuminati member. “Lacey can’t talk to ghosts!”

“I think you’re a better match for Lem.” interrupts a Kennedy family member ignoring the chaos and offering an opinion.

A dead one laughs at this.

“Why did they decide to do this?” asks Lacey to no one in particular.

“It’s funny isn’t it?” says Lauren Bacall. “Lacey we can’t protect everyone. But God can. He has angels. Sometimes He allows us to help, but only as He commands us. And no, we’re not angels.”

That may or may not have been real.

“Whatever you’re farm street-trash.” says Cable-dude. “So was Lem.”

“Is that an attempt to psychologically control me or do you sincerely still think that?” Lacey asks him.

This right when his wife would usually start freaking out and say something repulsive like, “They’re having an affair! He’s hiding it and so is she! I just know it! She’s such an ugly bitch. So ugly. But he loves her.

“She’s been entirely over him for years. Truly. We’ve watched. And thank God we’re not so easily fooled.” says a member of the British Aristocracy in the Illuminati.

And they’re right. But no matter how much Lacey tries to communicate this the American left doesn’t hear her. Neither does the populist right.

“It’s like survival of the fittest and she’s the fittest. It hurts man! It just hurts!” says Dana.

“Because she’s over me?!” asks Cable-dude.

“She was only questionably interested in you in the first place.” says a Millennial Illuminati member.

“I don’t think she ever loved you at all.” says an heiress in the Illuminati.

“That’s not true!” he says.

“Well I was in love. But it’s unclear if it was really with you.” says Lacey.

“Nooo.”

“No! This is so juvenile. I don’t have time for this!” says a “busy” American Illuminati member.
