"Have I ever known you?" Mr. Wogglebug asked

The planchette moved to the spirit's reply. "Yes."

Mr. Wogglebug was getting very intrigued now. "Where have I known you?"

The planchette moved to the letters "O" and "Z."

Now Mr. Wogglebug was just confused. "I have never been to Oz," he said.

The planchette went to the word "yes" at this.

Mr. Wogglebug was more puzzled and curious. "How do you know?" he asked the spirit.

The planchette moved quickly along the board and spelled out the sentence, "I am your creator."

Mr. Wogglebug was aghast. "But Professor Knowitall is my creator!" he exclaimed with indignation.

This seemed somehow to provoke the spirit because the planchette began moving rapidly in twists and turns all about the Ouija Board. So much so that even the experienced witch seemed to be worried.

"I think we had better just say goodbye now," she said hastily.

And so with combined effort she and Mr. Wogglebug moved the planchette to the word "goodbye" and thus the spinning of the planchette stopped abruptly and it fell still.

Mr. Wogglebug sighed deeply with relief as he leaned back in the chair. "Who was that?" he asked the witch.

"It must have been someone you may have known in a previous life," she replied.

"Well, what should I do now?" he asked.

"If I were you," said the witch in a serious tone. "I'd decide I'd seen enough and would want to leave here."

"You may be right," he agreed. "But how shall I leave?"

"If you will hold very still I can cast transportation spell on you to take you somewhere you need to go," she offered. "Or you can always go downstairs and ask Dr. Stein."

Mr. Wogglebug pondered these choices.

Should he let her cast a spell.

Should he go ask Dr. Stein.
