"Words" by Douglas Clegg - Dash joins an old god worshiping cult and brings his friend Mark into a ritual occurring on the shortest night of the year to intone the names of the old gods and be possessed by them. Before Dash recites the names he tells Mark words that can send the god back to the Nowhere if things get out of hand but Mark forgets the words. The cultists do not possess the entire name as a precaution but once heard the names cannot be forgotten. Dash recites the name and devours two teenagers Danny and Michelle that had been getting a ride with Dash and Mark to a party at Rachel's house. Mark is horrified at what Dash has become and the terrible fate which befell Danny and Michelle but when Dash begins the first part of the god names Mark is unable to resist supplying the second half of the name and his flesh is taken over by another old god. The two of them make their way to Rachel's party and assault the teenagers.
