Hahaha! I agree with you! I'm trying to live a long, stress-free life. So I wouldn't have gone either.
So true. Sometimes it is nice seeing this stuff in books but being glad it isn't real!

Seeing Abigail as a capable woman and my curiosity has been piqued, I will go with her and join in the adventure if only as an observer.

I definitely would have gone with Abigail. I read supernatural stuff all the time, I've written about it, I've watched multiple TV shows and movies about it. If I were to find out that yes, it all existed, there is no way I could just go home and go back to my previous life.

Life wouldn't be the same without the brave as well as the cowardly. I believe we need some of each.

I have to think deeply before choosing my steps. If I have to follow Abigail, it will be for a purpose to find some answers and also acquire ability to use supernatural power and operate with to achieve my goal.

You're a brave person. I would be interested in her journey but I wouldn't feel a need to observe it in person. I don't want to get hurt.

I would most certainly run while I had a chance. The whole supernatural thing freaks me out. I would be terrified and unable to help.

I think that I would have gone with Abigail. Even if it was just to make sure that I was safe. I would trust that she could keep me safe since she had saved me before.

For me, I can't sleep until that spider I saw in my room is killed or taken out of the premises, because I would fear it would crawl into my mouth while I slept. For the same reason, I think I would go, so I could learn how to defend myself and not always fear that a demon would crawl into my mouth while I slept haha.

I have no strength like Abigail and I’m not such of a big help, so I’m just a burden if I go with her. I also can’t just leave her in that dangerous situation, so the best way I could do is run to ask for assistance. I think that way I could help her out.

no. I eat up this stuff in a story, but in real life, I am a huge coward. So - pretty sure there's no heroic life in my future!!

Would go in a heartbeat. Not solely because of adventure, but because I wouldn't be sure that I would be able to protect myself without Abigail.

I would have just did the same thing Haatim did xD. If I didn't, I would have constant "what ifs?"

I couldn't fight my way out of a wet paper bag. But I was totally offended when she said you "can" come with me. It was his car they used. And It wasn't Haatim's fault for falling into this Demon fighting crowd and he had no idea that his Dad had a high rank in it. At that point, Abigail was the only person who could help him. So, if I was Haatim, I definitely would have gone with and probably would have been more of a pain in the butt on the way.

I would have gone with Abigail because I think they Haatim saw it, is that there is no way out of it. Once you witness something like he did, it is hard to forget it happened. Plus with the supernatural, it works in ways that you cannot escape. One can't just move away and expect the demons not to find them.
