As days went by, the boy began to show signs and symptoms of socio-phobia. Having no expertise to treat the boy; he become housebound.

However, his mother as usual would open up her poor heart to other females who would recommend various ways of treatments, some similar to the pumpkin remedy. Nevertheless, one day a woman suggested she take the afflicted son to a Jinn-repeller, sorcerer.

First, the boy was scared to death to try this treatment lest his secret might disclose. When his mother insisted, he gave up, hoping that he might be able to identify his rapist in the crystal clear water of the bowl.

Despite the sorcerer's high fee, his mother managed borrowing some from close friends and relatives. On the very day, they both set out to the sorcerer's home. Since indoor was off-limit to the mother, she sat on the bank of the river, invoking her God and the saints to cure her boy. The Jinn-repeller placed the bowl of water before the shy boy while taking his position right behind the boy, a position that terribly reminded the of the rape incidence.

The repeller placed a portion of Peganum harmala seeds on the burning charcoal to fill the room with fume. Next, the repeller began reciting his invocations. Then, he inquired if the Jinn had already appeared in the bowl.

To the boy's astonishment, the swearing words and the profile of his rapist which was deeply engraved in his mind gave the boy a fleeting glimpse of the rapist-a mental picture which was now as vivid as the crystal water in the bowl. He had always compared himself with a mouse in the paws of a cat. He had always wondered why the mouse would not show any resistance against the cat. He wondered why the victims taken to the execution pole would not ever show resistance.

At these dreadful moments, suddenly he raised his head and looked over his shoulder to see the face of the repeller for the first time. It was a very trying moment for the boy. Was it intuition? The repeller momentarily stopped breathing and riveted his eyes on the boy. The repeller became speechless.

The boy re-examined the vivid picture of his rapist in his mind. He once again saw the
clenched teeth of his rapist, when he was lifted up in midair. It was at this moment that the repeller showed sings of trembling and decided to get up and discontinue, but the boy who had ever since the rape day clandestinely armed himself with a deadly jackknife agilely turned around and swiftly cut the repeller's throat. While he was profusely bleeding, the boy stabbed him repeatedly in the chest. The last thing he did was cutting off his loathsome genitals and forcing it down into his blood-vomiting mouth.

Finally, the boy cleaned up his hand and streaked out of the house shouting 'Help! Help! The Jinn attacked us. They killed the Repeller.' Definitely, nobody among the multitude of Jinn believers, government as well as the people, suspected any crime. However, when the boy reached the river, he first threw the knife into the river. Next, he took out his legendary pebble out of his pocket and threw it on the river to 'skim stones. (End)
