News Casters: Breaking news, Willow Creeks influential billionaires Gunther Sr. and Cornelia Goth have both perished in an inexplicable fire, Officials claim that the deceased parents filed a missing persons report for their son Gunther Jr. the night prior. Is this an act of terrorism? More at eleven….
“Mon petit chou, your friend Mortimer must be devastated. I am no witch but I could tell his ‘eart is genuine, ‘e will be lost without ‘is family.”
Tatiana’s heart sank, the thought of not having any immediate family scared her more than anything. She knew she was to blame for Mort’s brother’s disappearance but had no idea how to make that better. Yet, now she somehow knew about his parents dying in a fire too – what’s the correlation -in fact why would she see it?! “I feel like I am to blame Mamie. I can’t believe I saw the fire while it occurred!. What good is having visions if I can’t prevent them from happening? Also, am I not supposed to have foresight that was more like now sight.”
“You are not to blame for the fire mon ange. You will be able to leverage your resources better with time, but know this…sight is temperamental, not everything is as it seems. Tell me, where is Mortimer living now?”
“He is living with his Aunt Agnes Crumplebottom and her boyfriend Mr. Darling, until further notice I guess. He is still within the school district so he will still go to our school, or so I heard from his girlfriend Nancy on Simbook.” Tatiana stuck out her tongue, she could care less about Nancy’s social status updates but it was like a train wreck, sometimes she couldn’t tear herself away from the damn app on her phone.
“That is good I suppose, ‘e will need ‘is extended family now more than ever. Oh, and I do think ‘e is much adorable.” Juliette had no shame in sharing when someone was easy on the eyes even if they were her grand-daughters age.
“Yeah, lots of girls think so.” Tatiana herself couldn’t deny his handsome appeal but she just never saw him in that way. In fact, no one really appealed to her at this moment in her life. Besides, why would anyone want to be in a relationship with someone like her? A witch of all things?!
“Oh? Do tell!” Juliette loved to hear all her grand-daughters school gossip. She felt she could live vicariously through her since her youth was much different than Tatiana’s.
“Well there’s Nancy Landgraab, his girlfriend for one…”
“She would like a broom dressed in slacks, especially if those slacks ‘ad money!” Juliette and Tatiana both giggled.
“Yeah, truer words have never been spoken Mamie. Oh and there’s one of the Caliente sisters…” Tatiana scratched her head in deep thought, “… also Bella…but, I don’t want to talk about school, could you tell me more of Celeste and Adriel?”
“But of course my child, where did we leave the story?” Juliette knew exactly where they left off she just wanted to ensure Tati was paying attention.
“Um, oh yeah…Adriel was devastated because his trollop of a wife left him…”
“…and Celeste became a demon.” Juliette nodded in appreciation of Tati’s capability to retain information.
“Oui, Celeste’s ‘unger for blood became unbearable she would engage men and women to do ‘er bidding and feed off of their blood. It was ‘er source of sustenance.”
“PEGUIN NIPPLES like a VAMPIRE??!!”
“Oui, the world calls them vampires but they are truly in its purest essence…demons.”
“We descend from vampires!!!???” Tatiana was shocked, speechless, outraged!
“No, ‘ave you not been listening this entire time, we are earthbound Fae! Fae with paths that are distinct and clear, it just so ‘appens that Celeste became a demon upon her Paths initiation that is all…”
“That is all??!! That doesn’t make me feel any better, but answer me this…Celeste came to earth to help Adriel, when did they meet? Because it sounds like she perpetually went grocery shopping at the blood bank instead.”
“Ah oui, Celeste forgot about ‘er original plan when she came to earth because the corruption was all consuming. It was years before she met up with Adriel. ‘e was an Adult…She was a young adult the first time they ‘appened upon each other on earth.
Adriel was heading back home from a medical conference in Oasis Spring. ‘e was about to board the train when ‘e was caught off guard by the daring public display of a raven ‘aired temptress. You see, back then women were not allowed unchaperoned and never should be caught in a compromising position if unmarried. It would be their societal undoing, she would forever be ruined if caught.
Yet, instead of being scandalized by ‘er behavior ‘e found ‘er boldness attractive. In truth, Celeste was enjoying her midday snack. But ‘e only saw ‘er seduction.
‘e was bewitched by ‘er beauty…dark and mysterious…When Celeste ‘ad ‘er fill for the day she let ‘er ‘victim’ go…that is when she locked eyes with Adriel and she was equally as entranced and instantly remembered why she came to be on earth in the first place.
‘er black soul stirred within ‘er in memory of who they once were. ‘er now cold heart began to beat violently in ‘ope of redemption. Could she still ‘elp Adriel, was ‘e still shattered by a broken heart? But who would save ‘er from ‘erself?
