Ethan would never admit it but he was a little scared about what might happen. The plan had fallen into place rather quickly. A little too quickly and he hadn't had much time to mentally prepare. It all started with the ouija board he had gotten over the break and decided to bring to school. There were plenty of visible ghosts around school but he was curious to see if there were ones they couldn't see. Surely there were more in a place this old. But then Weston had seen him fiddling with it in the common room and proposed an idea he couldn't deny. The older boy had seen the eel. The actual eel in the lake. While Ethan had seethed with jealous, his curiosity got the better of him when he mentioned the theory about it eating people. If they could summon a ghost by the lake that had been eaten by the eel, that would be all the proof they needed. And if the eel decided to make an appearance while they were out there, Ethan wouldn't complain. He kicked a few of the larger rocks out of the way before setting down a small blanket for them to set up their tools. Ethan sat down and took a deep breath as he opened the box to the ouija board. "Are you sure about this?" he asked and did the best to keep any worry out of his voice. He was trying to be brave and not seem like a scared second year but he wasn't sure if he was doing a very good job of it.

Weston was so excited for this. The plan, as far as he was concerned, was absolutely flawless, and he was a little annoyed he hadn't thought of it earlier. What better way to prove that the man-eating eels existed than to summon the ghosts of some of their past victims? Maybe then people would finally believe him when he told them a giant eel had once tried to kill him. Weston only hoped that these ghosts would be talkative. He'd struck up conversations with the normal castle ghosts before, but they usually got touchy when it came to questions about their deaths.

"Yeah, totally," Weston said confidently, taking a seat opposite Ethan. He pulled out all his normal eel-watching tools — his omnioculars, a waterproof notebook, a magical quill — as the other boy started to set up the ouija board. "Think of all the ghosts that must be swimming down there. We'll finally be able to talk to them," he said brightly. After all, it wasn't like they could go down there and talk to them face-to-face. The whole lack of oxygen problem aside, Weston didn't want to risk getting attacked again. "Surely one of them knows about the eels or knows someone who was eaten." He paused and glanced down at the board. "Okay, so how do we do this? I've only ever seen this done in movies."

Ethan tried to focus on the task at hand and not think too hard about what kind of spirits might want to make their presence known. His stomach did a sickening turn when Weston mentioned ghosts swimming in the lake and he thought about wading into the water and it feeling thick slimy because of all the ghostly ectoplasm and he made a face. He eventually pushed past it and nodded along. Their theory was solid. They just needed to prove it. "Well, I've never really done this before." he admitted when Weston asked him how it worked. But he had read the instructions over and over. He had also read enough ghost stories and seen enough movies to have a good sense of how calling spirits should go. "But first we need to figure out who's going to talk to it and who's going to write stuff down." Ethan explained. They needed to stay focused incase any angry spirits showed up.
