A group of several kids who grew up together decided that before all six of them went off their separate ways to university that they would all get together for one last seance like they had done before many times as kids. In the past the six boys would go out into the woods with candles, black capes and try to conjure up dead spirits. No, they did not merely sit down on the earth and perform the seance with surrounding candles. They would enter into a shack that was left behind by a hermit who had lived in the woods. The shack was so hidden in the bush that nobody knew of it except the six boys. They had visited it dozens of times in the past especially during the summer time to conduct their seances. They were not looking to contact anyone in particular with the exception of the first time when they contacted the spirit of the hermit that used to live in the shack. It was a most frightening affair as the six boys did not think that they were actually going to contact the hermit but they did and what started out as a little bit of fun quickly turned deadly. When they summoned the spirit of the hermit he was angry that the six boys were there. And then all of a sudden an axe that was on the wall flew across the shack in an end over end manner nearly lopping off the head of one of the boys. Seconds later a machete snapped off the wall and jammed itself in the table the boys were sitting at.
The boys were terrified from this experience but it was because of this experience that they came back. If nothing would have happened they would have never conducted another seance again. And so the boys went back time and time again but they were unable to summon the spirit of the hermit. So they tried general seances to communicate with anyone, even animals and on several occasions they were able to talk to spirits of both people and animals. But it was nothing like the first time when there was flying axes and machetes.
So on their final hurrah the boys headed out to the woods in the dead of the night. When they arrived to the shack it was still how they had left it from three summers ago. The boys entered it, sat down and started to talk about the times of the past. Then after an hour of jabbering they decided it was time for one last seance. One of the boys said he had heard of a new technique where they would use a steel ball pendulum to enduce a trance and then they would all try to seance a spirit through their subconscious.
The candles were lit and the ball of the pendulum started to clack back and forth and after a couple of minutes the six boys drifted off into trances. The whole time the pendulum ball smacked back and forth and when they no longer heard the smacking of the pendulum ball they were to snap out of the trance. The ball grew quieter and quieter until it no longer could be heard. The six boys woke from the trance and looked around. They were no longer flesh and blood, they were ghosts of there former selves. There was a an old calendar on the wall and it said 2120. They had been in a trance for a hundred years and they were dead and had summoned their own ghosts.
