Hungry ghosts

Since I’ve learned that I can use my finding spell to find people, dead or alive, I’ve been struggling with something. 

Should I try it to find Obaluaiye?  Or Royale? 

Probably they’re dead.  If they’re alive, they have reason for not contacting me.  In either of those cases there’s no reason to try and find them.   Other than selfishness. 

I’ve been trying to come up with other scenarios.  Scenarios where what I want to do is also the right thing to do.  I’m sure there’s a word for that.  Justification I guess.  But a word with more negative meaning. 

I called the professor and asked him about ghosts.  I asked him if Royale was dead if he could contact him.  Or conjure his spirit so I could talk to him.  He said that ghosts don’t work like that.  Ghosts aren’t the people we knew any more than a shadow is the person casting it.  He said that ghosts are more like an imaginary friend.  Only real.  Whatever the fuck that means. 

I asked him if he knew any magic people besides Mr. Petticord.  He said he didn’t but how can that be?  He’s a man of learning.  How can he be content not searching out more information?  I think he could tell that I was feeling depressed.  He said I should come visit him for a couple days.  I told him that I would next time I’m over that way.  But I probably won’t.

I used the finding spell.  Not to find Obaluaiye or Royale.  To find the blood mage that attacked his ex-wife with dogs.  He’s in Grapevine Texas.  I’m going there.
