cmw, if your friend is truly talented, she could have could have set the plushie up as a ward. I can do it with objects or what I dub mojo pouches.
My DH told me to take my gun with me if I was that uncomfortable...I could, but I'd need to get some kind of a holster for it....a taser or mace would be easier to carry, I think. I'll probably just stick to the gym from now on though.
So, Parker did have a chat with my newest buddy. I'm kind of impressed he followed this guy from the Congo. From what Parker would share, he and his family were killed a little over 15 years ago during a war and he is haunting the crap out of the guy that is responsible. My spirits are giving him lessons in better matter manipulation to really haunt this guy good.
I'd worry, but it seems like it is a reasonable response.
Parker left me with a word of caution, not to look up what happened, just take his word that it was really, really bad and I don't need the nightmares (I was hardly more than a teenager and don't recall the specifics other than there was a civil war there, I think).
