True Love's Glow
Author's note: I was inspired to write this after watching a show cale 'Witch Hunt.'
Witches In Salem“Catherine!”
“Lisa, I can’t let go!”
“Finally, a smart one, which is a witch quality,” cackled the guard.
“Let me go too!”
“No.” I say firmly. “I have to do this by myself.”
“Catherine, I want to—“
“No.” I say softly. “No, you don’t. I’m going somewhere far away.”
“Are you coming back?”
He starts pulling me away, with a grip so rough I am certain it will leave a bruise.
Was I going to come back?
“They’ll decide, okay?”
“Don’t worry, I’m sure they’ll let you come back.”
“Catherine, wait, you forgot your hair band. It’s the blue one! It’s your favorite one!”
I am wincing in pain at his grip as I yell back, “You keep it, Lisa!”
All I see is Lisa, playing happily in the yard, as I am thrown forward into a room densely populated with girls older and younger than I am.
