The Vicar, The Four Thousand Year old Demon and the Cup of Tea – Dark Comedy Farce

$5.50

So we’re a pretty normal family. Mum and Dad are pretty okay as adults go, I suppose. Jenny is the eldest one – she’s sixteen and I’m a year younger. Samuel – well he should be twelve, but is now about four thousand years old, so he says. My family is a little complicated, but hey, what family isn’t? Let me explain – my youngest brother has recently been possessed by a four thousand year old demon known  only as ‘DEATH TO YOU PUNY HUMANS.’ Whilst he is occupying Samuel’s body he mostly either hisses, mutters incantations or turns the milk sour. We’ve tried to learn to live with it. My father is pretty clueless really – honestly all he cares out is his gardening. My mother is cheerfully ignoring the fact that her youngest is possessed and is pretending everything’s pretty normal and that Samuel is merely a very naughty boy. And that he’s turned the milk again. Now, today, the Vicar’s coming to tea. Tea. With Milk.
