Excerpt for the series
– the oldest sister, who is now a witch, must convince her youngest sister to return home.
Fire danced in the cabin’s hearth as sage perfumed the cold air. The cloaked figure opened a ceremonial circle with a sprinkle of salt. The scraping of the straw-broom finished humming its mystical chant as the witch laid it near the altar. Mystical creatures on the carved box elicited her fingertips to trace the surface before placing it in the center of the circle. On opening, an array of magical treasures compelled her to cast the spell.
Freeing her spirit, she drew a deep breath, focusing her thoughts on a familiar subject; a young woman riding on the wind as a falcon. The image inspired a reminiscent smile that evoked admiration and misery. Each peek into her sister’s world revealed an untapped strength in a life of condemned servitude.
Fingering a long piece of twine, she strung it over the etched groove embedded in the floor before welcoming the watchtowers and elements. Trusting each item in the box, her confidence grew with the knowledge that each possess the power to answer her wishes. “For my altar, I offer these elements.”
Placing her colored candles in their sacred positions with each lighting, she thanked the gods. Dropping to her knees, she lifted the talisman, a hawk-shaped candle. Setting it on the floor, she chanted, “A fire hawk to bring its protection.”
Slipping her hand under a shiny purple rock, she offered the gift as invocations whispered from her pursed lips. “Wisdom to come for my amethyst. Oil from a water creature held in an ocean shell to ease the tide of emotions from swimming in the world of dreams.” She set a seashell with a small vial of fish oil nestled in its center on the floor.
“And illumination shall come from the quill of a dove.” Throwing the feather into the air, she watched it float back into the circle.
The remote connection brought her sister’s painful aches and dark thoughts into a reality pulse, proclaiming the time has come for her sibling to move forward and return to the life that mishaps had thrown off course.
Agitated by her part in the girl’s perpetual abuse, the woman fought the regret building in her soul and centered her focus on the four elements on the floor. Having established the inherent bond that they shared in their youth, she lowered her head and nudged a message through her sister’s dark dream. “Wake up, little one! You need to go home. Mother needs your help.”
