Severed Ties is a story of close friendships, addiction and magic.
Severed Ties - By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed
Consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting—Frankie and Sandra set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.
A few minutes later, the two stepped on to the bus. They wheeled their luggage down the narrow aisle. Sandra sat at the very back and prepared to read maps and travel info. Frankie chose the window seat ahead of her. Passengers read or conversed, others prepared to watch movies on their laptops. The uniformed driver boarded the bus and swaggered his way to the back, carefully examining every ticket. He walked to the front of the vehicle, sat, and then revved the motor for departure.
“Ready, set, go, Frankie?” Sandra asked as the bus driver revved the motor, again.
“Ready as I’ll ever be,” she sighed
The bus pulled out of the station. Sandra didn’t look up from her maps. She was quiet studying the travel information. Frankie stared out the gritty window, her mind flooded with childhood memories. The bus passed the tiny, brick building where she had attended school. They drove alongside the train tracks where she would watch the trains and imagine the destination, as well as the forest where she first practiced spell crafting. Every recollection included Sandra and Candice. The tender memories of her small town affected her emotions. She was aware of what she was leaving behind. She was about to leave her security for the unknown.
She didn’t know why, but she knew when she returned, she wouldn’t be the same person she was today.
