This story came from a couple whom I'm acquitted with. Let’s call them Tommy and Gina. They were in their mid 30s and knew each other as friends before getting together. Tommy had fancied Gina on the sidelines but never plucked up the courage to make the move. Them getting together was also a little controversial. She was engaged to another common friend, Paul; Tommy even attended the engagement party.
Shortly after the party, Gina started to see more and more of Tommy, and one day she declared to us that the wedding was off and she wants to be with Tommy officially.
This took us all by surprise, but considering that it’s not our problem and matters of the heart can be really fickle, we just left it as that. Grown ups making their own grown up decisions.
Paul unfortunately was distraught and inconsolable. Tommy and Gina too weren’t very thoughtful about their relationship and were living life loud and proud, posting their adventures all over social media. It all happened way too fast. This was not the Gina I knew. Though we weren’t really close, I’ve known her throughout my youth within the extended circle of friends.
Paul disappeared entirely from the scene. Didn’t reply to messages, didn’t pick up calls. Three months later, Tommy and Gina's relationship started to show cracks.
They would fight constantly. Of all the people, Gina chose to call me. One night, she wanted me to meet up at the stone table under my void deck. She was lost and confused and needed someone to speak to. I happened to pop up in her head so she reached out. I listened to her telling me about her relationship with Tommy and how she was thinking about going back to Paul.
Being a concerned yet curious friend, I started to ask more questions. That was when I started seeing signs that there could be magic at play.
Tommy had recently started visiting Thailand and did so often. From a shy boy, he suddenly became more confident and assertive. Gina, on her part said she loved Tommy “like mad” but it was strange because her feelings swung between very intense and cold detachment. When she was with him, she was head over heels in love. When
they were apart, she sometimes wondered why she was even with him in the first place. Recently, she found that he no longer spoke to her the same way he did before during the courtship, and he smelled funny. Love making was extremely explosive in the first three months, but now she says he reeked of rot and she could not bear to be intimate with him due to the “stench”. His touch repulsed her.
Lately, she had been having thoughts - even intimate dreams - of Paul.
I passed her an item that was gifted to me by an Ajahn. “I want this back,” I told her, “but I want you to hold on to this for now, and whatever you do, avoid seeing either Paul or Tommy the next 5 days. We’ll talk again next week.”
Three days later, I received a text from Paul, out of the blue after three months of silence. The message read: stay out of it.
