Despite his previous intentions, Keff has not yet returned. Leo says important business got in the way. Without him, she also seems to have given up on the mushroom hunt for the time being. I won´t complain about that.
Fortunately, October presents itself from its most beautiful side and we hardly miss our heater. Only in the evening the cold creeps through the brittle walls. Then we all sit in front of the fireplace and eat chestnuts and baked potatoes. No one feels like going to his cold room and so the evenings often stretch far into the night. Yesterday Leo, Till and I were the last ones. Till was barely able to keep his eyes open, but he made no move to go to bed. Leo wasn't very talkative either, and I suddenly had the strong impression that the two of them were just waiting for me to leave them alone. So I retreated and buried myself under my three blankets.
When I entered the kitchen the next morning, the air was warm and thick and full of heavy garlic aroma. I tore open the windows and took a peek into the fireplace room. Leo and Till were still lying there, sleeping soundly. Leo had curled up on the floor in a strange position, almost as if she had fallen asleep sitting up. Till was lying next to her on the sofa under a blanket. He looked pale and sweaty. A symbol had been drawn on his forehead in charcoal, and as I got closer I realized what it was. See for yourself.
I don't quite know what to make of it. Leo and Till claim that they have no clue where the symbol came from. But Till is not a good liar. He seems more miserable than ever - pale and shaky. Leo, too, is acting suspiciously. Constantly trying to create situations to be alone with Till. Something strange is going on between the two of them and I would love to know what. Do you guys have any ideas what all of this could mean? I'm not familiar with these kinds of occult affairs.
