“Now you see it, now you don’t.”
With those words, and a wave of his wizardly wand, the magician made a quivering rabbit disappear into thin air. Another wave and an abracadabra, meant to bring the rabbit back, instead brought a twelve foot demon, with four twisted horns and six glowing red eyes. The horrified magician stood frozen in fear, a petrified prop stuck on the stage.
His audience watched in wonder, for they still supposed this to be a trick of the magician.
The demon towered over the immoveable illusionist. He roared at the audience, “Now you see him.” He wiggled his flaming fingers and a flash of fire consumed the magician. “Now you don’t.”
The demon shifted into the shape of a bunny and hopped off the stage.
The audience applauded.
