A desperate mother, a choice of pain

A death and payment back

A soul released, a body diseased

The neck of spine doth crack

“Calm yourself my girl,” her mother advised with a soft firmness to her voice, “for your eyes are turning quite black.”

Shaking bones, visions of pain

Icy chills down your spine

Evil ghosts, a rush of death

Rotten fruit, bitter wine

Paranoia, sickness, feeling chased

Run but nowhere to hide

Hearing voices in your head

A deathly sickness by your side

Surrounded by lies, no one to trust

He’s out there ready to kill

Heart rate high, do or die

Spit and sawdust, blood will spill

Catherine Sabatina, 2017, chapter 30, Sweet Jasmine Blood and Magic, UK.

Blood and Magic

Chapter 2

What Happened Inside the Cottage?

SICILY STARES OUT to the night sky. The waves below crash upon the rocks with a relentless force.

Carolina stepping across to Sicily, asks, “So, you do think she will go to him?”

Sicily nods and pulls her black cardigan tightly around her goose pimpled body; she smiles knowingly. Carolina’s salty tears flow; she sniffs audibly before groaning, “Oh Goddess, what’ll become of her?” Carolina pulls a white, lace handkerchief from her pocket to dab her eyes. “What a mess!”

For a moment Sicily does not reply, instead opts to look further into the dark abyss. Eventually, Sicily voices, “She’ll be fine, but she needs sanctuary.”

Carolina sighs heavily; she knows only too well that Hecate would be closing in on the fleeing Adrianna Jasmine, with a force as powerful as the universe itself. “The castle,” Carolina speaks in a low voice, “will she go there? Will that be her sanctuary?”

Sicily turns to her friend and replies with a steely glint to her eye, “I’m counting on it, but what she chooses once she enters the castle walls, is something in which we cannot involve ourselves.”

The Hallowe’en season is upon us and I’ve published a series of children’s diaries, where the reader can interact with the white witch Adrianna Jasmine and be introduced to her magical world.

“The diary is lovely to read at bed time with your mummy and during the day you can try out her spells and recipes.”

Enjoy

The cat whilst affectionate, can scratch your arm

Draw blood and make you curse

But it’s so slinky, warm and soft

Feline menace for better or for worse!

Serene and beastly, affectionate and aloof

You never can quite tell

The cat likes her cuddles, attention and kisses

Sometimes heaven, sometimes hell!

Leave me alone and go away

Come back right now, I want to play!

Feed me milk, no I want cream

I’ll be your friend, come what may

I’m very loyal, but I leave when I like

I may come back next week

You hate me now and you’re pleased I ran

Deep down you know I’m yours to keep

Cat!
