Witchcraft... In Salem?

The Putnam's within a span of sixteen years lost seven children at birth. Their eighth child survived, Ruth Putnam, who is now sixteen years of age. The family was devastated and thought they had been cursed. Ruth and her child hood friends Betty Paris, Abigail Williams, and her slave Tituba. These suspects were involved in a ritual that happened at 3 a.m. (Devils Time) they were seen dancing around a kettle over an open flame and drinking blood. The next morning Betty fell into a deep slumber and thought she could fly. The Putnam's called Reverend Hail to come look and give a diagnosis. It seems to be the work of Lucifer.
