Jantree didn’t believe Giacomo, and in fact seemed quite adamant about not believing him. It was as though for Jantree to believe Giacomo would mean inviting something wicked into the room, and to dismiss it as beyond preposterous would keep that from happening.
“Spirits possess. Beings with no physical form possess. But a living person cannot possess!”
“But it does not change what Giacomo has seen,” Alastair said. “A man stepped from the body just as Tallune fell.”
