Prolific author and friend Marie Lavender has done it again and with plenty of charm: A Little Magick in one life that transforms many. Take a look….
A Little Magick
Little Rosie goes to stay with her uncle. There she meets some new friends…and some enemies. She doesn’t know that her emotions will trigger something unusual. So far from home, suddenly Rosie has become a full witch like her mother. For a time, it is great fun to use her powers the way she wants, but can Rosie figure out how to use these newfound powers for good or will she be lost to the dark side forever?
Now, she was going to Seattle, where Uncle Adam lived. She hoped summer there wasn’t as bad as she feared. Rosie didn’t doubt he’d try to make her comfortable, but he was a lawyer. All the lawyers she’d seen in town were stuffy. She wondered if he would be the same, not fun like her Daddy. Rosie released a long sigh.
“Cheer up, butterfly,” Mama said now, trying to get her attention. Mama often called her ‘butterfly’. She said it meant that one day, Rosie would come out of her cocoon and become something beautiful, extraordinary. Now she was termed ‘cute’, but she was told, she would be more when she grew up. Then she would have gifts. Rosanna didn’t know what it all meant; she only hoped she’d be taller.
“Hey, baby. It’s going to be okay. It won’t be long. It will be over before you know it. I know your Dad and I will be busy, but we’ll call to check on you. And if either of us can get away earlier, we’ll be right back to get you.”
She giggled as Mama used her free hand to link her pink finger with Rosie’s. Then she sobered as, a few minutes later, the car exited the huge highway. They must be close. Her belly began to cramp with dread.
“Rosanna, Sweetheart, it won’t be so bad. I know Uncle Adam doesn’t have any kids, but he was a kid once too, you know. I’m sure he knows exactly what to do.”
“Does he have a pool? Can I go swimming?”
“Ah, I don’t know. I haven’t seen that side of the house. But, you’ll meet other kids in the neighborhood. Maybe you’ll make some new friends, hmm?”
“I doubt it,” she muttered.
“Come on, Rosie. I know this is hard. It’s hard for me too. Don’t you know how much I’ll miss you?” She patted her hand briefly. “Can you be a brave girl for me?”
She nodded. “Okay,” she whispered.
“Good girl. And don’t worry. It will go so fast, you’ll be amazed when I come back for you. You may not want to leave.”
She giggled again as Mama was being silly. Rosie shook her head. She couldn’t imagine wanting to stay in Seattle.
