Chapter 1:

I HAVE everything I want now. My mom won’t come back to life, but at least I have a place to belong among the vampire Witches. Something evil was coming and we will stop it but it wasn’t always this way, in fact I was lost and drunk. The new Witch leader was a bully, and this is my story of how I stopped her and got my powers even stronger to help my mom’s soul rest.  

My mom got sick at an early age, and that was unheard of in Witch history. It all started when she got a headache. She kept getting them and it didn’t stop. She was also losing weight, and no one knew why. She went to the Witch doctors since this was some‐ thing odd no one has ever heard of. It also drained her magic too, another odd thing since we are given unlimited powers over various elements. We never run out ever so this thing must not have been a normal illness. Even curses weren’t this bad. She had it so bad she was admitted to the hospital and stayed there.  

The plain hospital beds and ghosts still haunt me to this day. I will never enjoy the smell either since disinfectant won’t be the same. Luxor hospital had its share of ghosts, creatures and spirits passing through. Spirits still are around here though I can feel them on the edge of my consciousness. I could feel but never see since it requires a special stone that I needed in order to even see which will give my powers a kick. I’m powerful but I could be even stronger.  

 They had a Witch ward that I stayed at with her. They have a separate area for di erent creatures. The Witch ward was my friend since they told me they couldn’t do anything to save her. She was placed in hospice care, and I cried for days. And since I was good with potions and she needed a ton of help, I was one of the only ones helping. Dad helped when he could since he had vampire business to attend to – not the other members though. My phone was never texting stu , but some of the people who bullied her had the nerve to visit. Luckily, one had an alcohol problem and I was able to get her barred from visiting.  

I lived in our Witch house while I cared for her and spent the night there. There was a certain useless warlock and his Witch  fiancée who didn’t bother. She was also appointed leader since Mom was too sick to help with coven duties. I gave her meds to help but watching her power draining slowly and wasting away was the worst feeling in the world. To make matters worse the ugly bitch leader began throwing her stuff  away and never even bothered to ask if I wanted anything. Just took over like she owned the place even went through Mom’s good stuff  and kept it for her own. She never even bothered asking me at all. All this was like watching a train wreck right before my eyes. It was discouraging trying spell after spell and having everything fail. I tried every‐ thing and at one point I was afraid of hope. Nurses were there too, and their dark uniforms weren’t reassuring since she was placed in the wing for Witches preparing to die. No one will know how badly it feels to have their mother pass unless it happens to them. Also, as the days passed, she barely moved, barely spoke and barely ate. She even developed bed sores and they smelled horrible when they changed her wounds. They looked and smelled like rotting zombie  flesh and the skin looked like candle wax. I even had to help give my mom shots and I hate needles. It was one of the worst times in my life. And yet things were progressing worse and worse until that one day.  

The thing about me is I’m also a Witch with an a nity for death. I can tell when someone is dying. And that day I knew it was time for her to go felt like yesterday. I woke up groggy since I stayed at the hospital more. I didn’t see any point in going back to the house because the bitch Agatha was there.  

Mom’s blood pressure was dropping, her heartbeat got slower. She was progressing fast and it made my gut wrench even more just watching her fade. And I could feel her soul preparing to leave. Her powers were almost nothing now. Time ran out. I held her hand and so did the rest of the coven too since I called them to see their leader for one last time. Even dad was there crying red tears. Even Vampires cried because they were a bit human.  

Her last words to me were, “I will miss you. I’m sorry. I love you. You are the best thing me and your dad had since you were part everything. You have the powers to see the dead. And Vampires will bow to you. The spirits will guide you to avenge me. And the one who did this will pay.” She said before she passed that someone is coming who will change my life. For me to wait until he strikes. I have no idea where to look. She also gave me a special necklace before she passed. A black opal  re which is a stone to help with zombies and Vampires. I got it from her hand and the weight of it made me sure. I cried and vowed to avenge her. Rage took over since there was something bugging me. Even during the early days before I poured through books, websites, went to Witch shops to stop it but nothing helped. At all. She was getting skin reaction too and had hives her skin looked itchy and  rushed a lot. Her blood pressure was constantly low. And she kept having trouble breathing and wheezed a lot with a swollen tongue and throat. Her pulse became weak and rapid over time, and she was constantly nauseous and would vomit a lot and use the restroom all the time. It kept getting worse and worse each time.  Then she passed away after her breathing stopped completely. She looked at Agatha with such hatred that I wondered if it was an illness like they said or something worse. Agatha looked smug and my rage for her burned.  

Dad was even surprised to see it and he was also helping me here and there with her care. He was busy with leader stu  and I don’t blame him. I was taking care of mom watching her slowly die and everything was on hold. I did wonder if it was really an illness or just bullshit they used to cover something up.  

That week was a blur since we had the funeral. My mom’s money was given to me and dad which was a good amount. Then it got worse since the new bitchy leader was o cially introduced to the coven. Agatha Harold was the o cial leader.  

Things were good for a bit. Then it got worse since some of them hated my abilities. They all heard how di erent I was. One coven member close to the snobby leader forced me to move my car and got in my face about it. The bitch Helen couldn’t under‐ stand. And I didn’t want her blocking my car since she would park behind me even though she parked in a di erent spot. I didn’t want to ask someone to move their car every time. The bitchy snobby Witches were trying to slowly bully me. The dumb Witch even got in my face and yelled at me saying it was my fault the trash people couldn’t get the trash out. Spitting in my face as she yelled at me trying to make me feel horrible. I even moved the car somewhere else. She got mad over that too just looking for a way to make my life hell. ‘Oh god why did you move it there?’ Well, you were the bitch bullying me over a parking spot. She had an evil sister named Helen Zaas and she was ugly. Dull black hair and glacial blue eyes. She thought she and her sister were hot shits just because of their family and it made me sick.  

Then the dumb bitch leader Agatha marries the loser warlock who has no car and no license. Her parents put together a snobby Witch wedding since she is a spoiled bitch who always gets her way. She has it a month later after my mom passes and says she did it all for her like I cared. I was already at my wits end with grief and these Witches acted like it didn’t take a long time to heal from something traumatic. They were insensitive and went out of their way to bully me during a shitty time. They made me feel like absolute shit and anything out of her ugly, volatile mouth would be petty drama. 

Not like anything worked. When the dumbasses had the wedding for the horrid leader who was slowly introducing dark magic to the coven like it was no big deal they put the good witches outside as a punishment. At least they gave free booze. It was also done like a warlock wedding as if the witch’s side didn’t matter. Some of the Witches in the coven were already having a slowly dark tint to their magic like a disease. I wasn’t happy over the way they treated the older members either since they tried to put one of them outside and it was hot. Those dipshits even forgot my name there like I didn’t matter. And I got mad and cried since those assholes brought back all those feelings of not being wanted. No one ever understands unless it happens to them. They were so insensitive to me that I went home since I couldn’t stand to be there. 

Agatha texted me since apparently according to her I was ruining her wedding. She was bitching about me crying at her reception and that it is the  rst thing she sees ignoring the fact that my mom just died. She tried to turn it on me and claimed I stressed out her family. She is lucky I even went since the last thing I wanted to do a month after burying my mom, is to go to a wedding of an evil bitch of a leader. The ugly bitch even had the balls to tell me to move out or leave her alone like she owned the place. Now looking back, I should have killed her before she became an issue. 

She was treating me like I was the one causing issues when she was corrupting people’s magic one by one. I feel sorry for the warlock she married since she isn’t cut out for Witch politics, always trying to look strong at my expense. I was also dealing with a sick cat dragon who is now my guardian and always with me and needs my care. Her dumbass husband didn’t drive and he claimed it was because of anxiety. The bitch bullied me just because I live there to pick him up when it wasn’t my job to take care of her husband. One of the days I took him there and that same day the bitch sent me a nasty bitchy text asking why I can’t pick him up when he never asked me in the first place. The husband is a bully too. She called me lazy and selfish because I didn’t want to go out of my way to help her with her husband. She thinks she is all that just because she took my mom’s position as leader. I think she wanted to take her position for a while, and out of all the coven members I was one of the only ones who didn’t kiss her ass. And she threatened my pet’s life by saying she will take her outside. Her husband even stepped in as if I should be nice to his ugly wife and asked me to apologize to her for calling her names. The douche took my work and witch stuff  and held it over my head like a douche. That day I almost set his ass on  re since he was dangling it over my head since the bastard was taller than me. I wanted him to die. He had no right to touch my stuff . Only took another member for the ugly bully to listen. And his pants were set ablaze since I couldn’t control it. He  nally backed down and looked at me with fear.  

I called her names since she was threatening to put my cat dragon to sleep this time. And the ugly Witch even laid a hand on me The last straw came when she took my mom’s herbs and the stuff  I paid for and did not even bother to ask me if it was okay. I had to leave the horrible place since they were wrecking my already fragile mental health. Ever since Mom passed things haven’t been the same. She was my rock and voice of reason now she is gone. Her passing means the coven members thought they could just bully me without consequences. Agatha even has repeatedly said I was the issue and I should stop starting stuff . They are the worst witches I’ve ever dealt with. I moved to a Witch apartment away from them. They tried to act like victims one too many times and will do anything and everything to bring someone down. The happiest moment was me leaving for good. She was a low level Witch anyway. My cat dragon has to be put to sleep since the bitches’ pet carried  fleas and it killed her. She took the creatures body, too after she passed. I wondered why since I thought she was a good but lazy Witch. There are the bad Witches and there are the good ones and some in the middle. Bad ones use creature parts or blood. Another reason to leave since I had a shitty feeling Mom’s death was no accident since Agatha constantly went against everything mom tried to do to steer us in the right direction. After she passed, a lot of the members would gather with her to perform secret rituals I was excluded from. It wasn’t looking like a normal coven but about the bitchy leader and her drama. I  nally left the coven at age 22. I was done with them bossing me around and all the  ghts made me sick. I caught Agatha trying to steal my mom’s spell book and blasted her for it. This book couldn’t get into her shitty hands

I’m going to be working on book 16 which is the last AngelWitch book in the series and after that is out I plan on releasing a boxed set of AngelWitch books 1-6 and it will even include Vampire Witches Mina and Lilly! I want to make the boxed set a hard cover so there is plans. I still have the Scarlet Summers series and a few other projects in the Queue!

Stay tuned!

Save a Cat Story Cards Review!

Save the Cat!’s
 
WOW! WOMEN ON WRITING TOUR

About Save the Cat! Story Cards

Introducing Save the Cat!®Story Cards, consisting of Save the Cat! Beat Cards and Save the Cat! Scene Cards, all designed to outline and develop your story. 

Save the Cat! Beat Cards 

Crack your story from the “Opening Image” to the “Final Image.” Save the Cat!® Beat Cards provide writers with the 15 key plot points to map out your script or novel. Every set contains 15 individual index cards with helpful explanations of each beat to form the foundation of your story. 

Save the Cat! Scene Cards 

Every scene of your story needs to communicate “place,” “basic action,” “emotional transformation,” and “outcome.” The Save the Cat!® Scene Cards help writers nail the purpose of every scene. Each set of cards contains 40 color-coded cards broken down by act, with 10 extra cards because we know you’ll need them. 

My Review!

Once Save a Cat had these story cards I knew I had to try them out. I love using them for stories since it has all the points discussed in the book. I loved the book since it went over how to plot a story and for my example I use the hero/heroine arc more than anything. They have beat cards where you can write down all the various beats to your novel and they also have the scene cards. Both are helpful for outlining your novel. It is actually fun to use these cards since it is like using them to outline your novel. They are very helpful in helping you plot out the story since it goes through these various beat cards: OPENING IMAGE,  THEME STATED, SETUP, CATALYST, DEBATE, BREAK INTO 2, B STORY, FUN AND GAMES, MIDPOINT, BAD GUYS CLOSE IN, ALL IS LOST,  DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL, BREAK INTO 3, FINALE, and the final image. They also have scene cards with location, moment, the emotional change and you can even put the conflict with the good guy and the obstacle. These are very helpful for breaking down a novel and I loved using them to help me plot Afterlife. These pretty much lay the foundation for your book and help you outline using the Save a Cat book plan. For a more detailed review I’ll link the book review here: https://jessicasamuelsauthor.com/2020/05/02/save-the-cat-writes-a-novel-book-review/

I suggest you use them both to help you outline your novel. I would definitely recommend them since they help you thoroughly outline your book. Everything you ever need to write and outline a novel is in these cards. I definitely plan on using them for future books when I plan my novels. I’ve finished two chapters of Afterlife, and I’m trying to take my time with this. I hope you enjoyed the review and I will see you in the next post.

Live Writing Stream 1 Talking about my books and working on Afterlife – YouTube

I did my first writing stream on January 29th and it was fine. It was harder then I though to type it up but I had no issues planning it out and talking over the worlds. However, the writing flows better when I write it by hand so if I do another stream it might be me typing it up since to stream I have to have more to talk about since writing isn’t exactly interactive. It will also be a rough draft which is the first part of the process. Finishing is another story but in order to do that I’ll need to carve out time to write. I want to do this full time and stream full time. This is my journey unlike any other. I’ll be streaming the process here and there and writing about it on my website. The concept of Afterlife came about since my mom passed and you will see the character going through the grieving process. No one will really understand unless it happens to them. When I wrote more it also took a life of it’s own since I recently learned about Dungeons and Dragons and Minecraft. So this book will be more fantasy then others. This is hard work really and something few people understand. There will be more articles to come!

See you next time!

Marina Book 5 of my AngelWitch series is out!!!

0


Marina is an Air witch with the power to call dragons, and the last AngelWitch. She is forced to flee her witch mansion when one of her own coven members attacks her coven. She teams up with her mate Draven, who is half vampire and half dragon. Together they will stop the evil witch and the evil vampires attacking his dad’s peaceful vampires, by having the key to summon the ultimate Elemental dragon. All together the AngelWitches have the power to stop the evil since war is almost here! Good versus evil and the final showdown will be Book 6 AngelWitch.https://amzn.to/34TRGeu

It is finally out! And it was hard to write with all the stuff going on since my mom passed away last month. I figured keeping busy with writing will help so I will be working on Book 6 in the meantime it will have all the girls and you get to catch up with what they are doing. It will also be in third person so look out for that!

Chapter 1:

I never thought I would actually have a place to belong. I always thought I would be an outsider since the coven never liked my powers. I was promised to someone not out of love but out of necessity. Instead of that, I was cast out. I have the love of my life now and I couldn’t be happier. It wasn’t always like this though. And I complete the circle of a coven more powerful than my mom’s to call the ultimate Dragon. It wasn’t always like this either. And my mate completely changed my life for the better. 

It led me to a journey of self-discovery since there was a war going on and the ones who could save the realm were five Witches. They weren’t ordinary ones, but half angel and half Witch like me. And this is how I met my AngelWitch coven and even found my soulmate along the way. 

I was in my room in the WitchFire coven mansion. Mom was done with the lecture about me being the next leader. I learned history, spells, rituals, and I even practiced Dragon magic on the side. Something I never asked for was to be a leader since it wasn’t part of my plans. It wasn’t in my plans at all, but they wanted me to take charge. Unlike most Witches I can call upon Dragons which is really rare. I sat in my room to think about what I truly wanted. I wished I had a Coven who would accept me. Honestly, I am different than the rest of them. I have powers they don’t have. My abilities are rare and I can even summon Dragons to help me fight in battle. I wish I could use them and have a coven full of fierce fighters.  I have a cool theme to my room since it is about the sea with a high-powered desktop and cool gaming chair. It was fine out today so no need to wear a sweater inside. I relaxed on my bed with my phone in hand scrolling through social media. I thought being a Witch involved spell casting and fun times, but it is a lot of boring meetings at times. 

The Luxor realm was built for Supernaturals to live in, yet it was becoming more than a joke. What I wouldn’t give for some action. Something that didn’t involve a meeting or discussion, but action and magic. 

Things are rocky right now ever since the Luxor realm went into chaos. There are creatures attacking the good covens. The bad covens are trying to take over since an evil is growing you can see it everywhere. The good Witches just want to pretend it doesn’t exist, but I see it. The Dragon goddess herself even said that things are going to happen like good covens being attacked by bad as a new evil tries to take over. Something is here and I can feel it and there is also going to be a gathering of supernatural creatures soon. 

Something must be happening to warrant that.  It must be and I am not the only one who feels it. The goddess herself of the Dragons Malinda said for me to look out for the one who calls to me and me to him. I am an AngelWitch and it means there is a mate out there that is mine and he is my everything. He will help me come into my full power and give me wings. They are called Protectors and they are there to be with you through everything. Unlike the dude who only cared about himself and was very fucking controlling. He didn’t even want me to have guy friends and thought I was sleeping with anyone that moved; I wasn’t. I needed to get out of that failure of a future marriage before they are stupid enough to make me be tied to the abusive asshole. I needed to find a guy more powerful who I love to be by my side. Someone from a powerful family, too. He needs to be worth breaking the powerful alliance and someone who will help more than an idiot. 

The abusive guy’s name is Wade Johnson, the golden blonde Warlock who has everything going for him. Looks and all and he was even excelling in Luxor academy; but someone I had to be tied to since he came from a powerful line of Warlocks and their alliance means we can forge a powerful coven. Bullshit politics. Not love but bloodline and I was sick of it, really I was. Scrolling through stuff took my mind off things until another boring meeting took place. But I was done after a little bit. Bored. Life isn’t the best and it is better to forget about it. And just move on. Move on from a time when I liked meetings and boredom. 

A knock at the door, and I called out, “Come in.” 

The door opened and there was a girl standing in front of me. She had black hair, grey eyes, and pale skin. She wore black jeans and a nice black shirt. She is also smiling at me. I wondered why.

“My name is Angeline, and I have been looking for you since you are the last AngelWitch to complete the circle,” she said.

I smiled at her. “And why should I come with you?” 

“We need you since you are a powerful Witch, and you are the last one we need to form a powerful coven to stop evil. And it isn’t safe for you here once a Tracker finds you. You see, being an AngelWitch means you have a Protector who will help you come into your full power. You will even have Trackers trying to kill you or turn you. And the only safe thing for you is being with a Protector or a coven, and a lot of the girls came from broken covens or covens who cast them out.” She said.

I thought about it some and I do want more than just meetings. 

Then a girl came behind her and she had dark red hair and green eyes. She also had pale skin and wore a green top, and blue jeans. She smiled at me. 

“And I am Ember, and you look like you need a drink lets go to the bar across the street to talk.”

That sounded like a good idea, and I could use a good drink. I smiled at them since they seemed nice and approachable. I needed to get out anyway this place was starting to bore me with all the shit going on. I gathered my stuff and headed with them to see what they had to say.

“I will go with you and it’s better than sitting in my room being bored out of my mind with the same shit,” I said. And I followed them.

I walked with them through the mansion and some of the Witches looked at me curiously. The coven members probably wondered about them, too and the coven house was all I knew. But I let them take me to the bar by us since it was a place that I liked going to as well. The place they were talking about is Rockie’s Blood and I knew the owner all too well since he was a major player here. He was a Werewolf leader that actually helped us out from time to time if there were wolf issues. I enjoyed staring at him, but he was taken so I wouldn’t even do that. 

And then my mind wandered to that bitchy Witch Lisa some more who just loved to go out of her way to make my life miserable. She would always have something to say about what I did. She never liked the fact that I could summon Dragons and show her up when it came to magic. Yet she never wanted to lift a finger or do real spells. She loved being a Witch without the effort it took to cast spells.  Joke is on her since her husband left her for another woman. And she even tried to say that I wanted her husband when I didn’t even care. He was taken and I don’t go after married men. She was my friend at one point even best friends, but all I heard about was their marriage issues. And she was always stuck in the past. I got sick of it and when we got into a fight it was the final straw and I didn’t bother answering her texts. She was bitter, but it doesn’t matter anymore. 

We got to the car Angeline was driving and two guys were already in with them. Angeline smiled, “This is my Angelmate Felix, head of the Protectors in the front and in the back is Embers Syphon.” The guy in the front had short, dark blonde hair spiked and blue eyes. He wore a nice shirt and jeans. There was a guy in the back with brown eyes, and tousled brown hair wearing a shirt and jeans. Wow. This was something I can definitely see myself being a part of. Maybe. I just didn’t know what to do at times. I got in with them and we made our way to the bar. 

I didn’t need to worry about much except the meeting life which was boring and something was missing in my life. The coven members never did anything fun either and it is such a hassle to just even do one simple spell for them. They need to talk about it first. So, I do some in secret and even practice summoning Dragons and even look up mythology. I wanted to explore more than just my coven walls and belong to something that matters and makes a difference. The way there is easy and close by and before I know it, we pulled into the parking lot of the bar.

Rockie’s Blood is a popular place and every creature goes there: Witches, Vampires, Werewolves, everyone pretty much. It is also a no fighting zone and a place to relax and discuss stuff. It is a pretty nice place and has a lot of tables, chairs and booths. It is a place to even have a drink, and I wasn’t driving so I can definitely order one

We got to the hostess stand and she sat all of us at a booth. The place was busy for an afternoon and it was a happy hour. Perfect time to kick back, have a drink and bitch about how shitty the day was. I sat down next to Angeline. Felix was next to her then Ember and Syphon. They had a way different feel to them. All connected not disjointed or broken. Something I wished to be a part of since my Coven is different and they don’t like to get their hands dirty thinking spells and rituals are beneath them.  Everyone is like a complete unit and no bickering like the coven I am used to where they argue about stuff and can’t make up their minds. It took forever for them to decide how to handle a simple ritual that would be completed in five minutes. 

The coven is split into two: my mom’s side, and the evil rival side. Lisa does have power, but she isn’t nearly as strong as me. I look at the menu deciding what I want to get and a lot of it looks good. There was a weird feeling of being watched so I looked around the room only to see this sexy guy staring straight at me. My god was he sexy, chocolate brown eyes, brown hair to his shoulders, tan, and wore a nice silk shirt while drinking from a blood glass. A Vampire and something else. Something different that called to me and said mine which is weird since I don’t even know him. And he is muscled with a blue Dragon tattoo. He looked like he came off the cover of a romance novel. Wow. Vampires are definitely really sexy. I am definitely thinking of jumping him. He is such a sexy sight.

“Marina?” Angeline said. I looked at her, and she smiled.

“Sorry I got distracted.” I said looking at the menu and ignoring my raging hormones telling me to jump him. This night calls for a drink. I got a burger and a Jack and Coke. I wanted to relax and not think about meetings for once. If something was happening, I needed to be a part of it especially since I know something is up. The bar is nice with creatures all around us joking, laughing and having a good time. There were some drinking blood, and some even eating creatures’ parts. Eww. 

The waitress came up to the table and we all ordered what we wanted. It was nice to sit down, and to get away from all the coven politics. Since I was the next in line or was if Lisa doesn’t try to do anything. I had to navigate everything. I want to be a part of a powerful coven and help people. 

Angeline looked at me.

“We have needed your help for a while and finally found you by tracking you down from our compound. We have a place just for AngelWitches and you are the last one so we can perform the ritual with the Dragons. It was also a shock when my Protector found me for the first time since I was living in Crystal Crest not even knowing my heritage, and I adjusted after a while. I worked retail and hated where I was at. I was happy to find a coven of my own. I was even able to meet my mom and dad. You’ll also be able to fly once we help you come into your power and join us. ”

I thought about it some and it’s not like I felt welcome at my coven anymore with one side hating mine. There were members that treated me like an outcast since I have the powers over the Dragons. But I have never seen a Dragon yet; I just see the one in my mind. 

“I have always been in this realm all my life, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else. I know what it is like to not know your place. We have a coven split in two: one side opposes my mom the other doesn’t. Instead of taking action or doing spells they just sit in meetings to discuss stuff.  I dread the day when they are in actual danger since they will probably just meet about it, too.  I do like the feeling of it being a family and being part of a coven who takes action. Do you actually do spells?” I asked.

“Yes and we explore places getting artifacts of power if needed to help each other. We helped the Spiders and even Mermaids, too. We love adventure,” She said.

“I love adventure as well,” a voice said. We all turned toward it and in front of the table was the dude I was staring at. He was taller than I thought, and even sexier with that bad boy edge. He held the glass of blood in his hand. I suddenly wondered what it would be like to be bitten since we are like energy drinks to them. A part of me really wanted to find out and have him take me…wow. There was something there that I have never felt before since he actually gave me butterflies. 

He smiled at me.

“Sorry to interrupt. I couldn’t help but overhear it and adventure is everything. My name is Draven. I am her Protector, and I have been watching her for a while so she will be protected by me at all times,” He said.

Everyone was shocked to see him

“We were just talking about having her in our coven since she is a powerful Dragon Witch and we are the AngelWitches; I am the leader. We have finally found the last member to help us in defeating the dark angels. We have been waiting for her Protector to show up since we knew one would be nearby,” Angeline said.

“I’ve no doubt. She is unique…as am I. No one has ever heard of a Vampire Dragon before. My mom was a Dragon and she is in the Dragon area, dad was a Vampire. They had no idea it would happen. Yet I am here and I have never had someone call to my Dragon half like she does. I could feel her as soon as she entered the bar – she calls to me,” He said. His look made my heart beat faster since he’s soo hot. Damn Vampires are sexy and one was focused right on me. But I had other things to think of and it was nice to see someone as sexy as him.

And a ding on my phone made me get it out. It could be an important text. It is the latest phone and it even allows me to play fun games. I open it and I get a text that shocks me.

It was from my mom. 

Don’t come back, some stuff went down with Lisa and she even took Wade to join her along with some corrupted of the members to the dark side. Not safe to come back until she is gone. And she even mentioned something about if she catches you then she will give you to Zack as a present since he promised her dark angel powers. 

I froze, my eyes went wide and thank god I have alcohol since it makes me calm.

Angeline looked at me worried and I showed her the text. “Who is Lisa?”

“My rival and the one who wants to take the coven from me. She hates the fact that I got the dude since she is always trying to steal my boyfriends from me. I don’t even want him though and I even told him I didn’t want to be with someone I don’t love. She can have him and my old life,” I said.

It looks like I have no choice now, but to leave.

And that bitch finally did something right since now it allows me to be free of everything and start a new coven.

I even showed them the text from my mom.

Angeline’s eyes went wide after she saw it, “Zack is Felix’s Dark Angel Brother, he was imprisoned… we will protect you and once you come into your power…She can’t touch you since you have us. Zack will never get to touch you,” Angeline said.

Felix smiled. “We will keep you safe or Draven will and since she mentioned Zack then we have bigger problems than a Witch Tracker. He must not be where he is supposed to be so I will find out and text you as soon as I can. We must also keep watch on Draven with him out since it means Marina is in danger.”

Draven smiled, “And you have me and now we can bring the wrath of the Dragons on her and make sure she isn’t a threat again. She can’t get away with threatening you at all.” 

I smiled thinking of the thought. “I now have no choice but to go with you since I can’t go back now with her threatening my life. I want to join your coven as an AngelWitch.”

Angeline smiled, “Welcome to the team and we can even gather the girls so you can come into your power with us all.”

The waiter brought us a round of drinks and I was happy over it. My shot came and I downed it. I was ready to take a chance and I needed magic not meetings. Action. However, I still needed my stuff and mom and I do have a spot we share just for emergencies. I needed all my arsenal since she is clearly a threat like always but now threatening my life? 

The bitch is going down. 

I texted my mom.

I need my stuff and my magic items. Meet at the special place and I will tell you about where I will be going. The AngelWitches found me here.

Mom texted back. 

Will do! I hope you are safe!

“I texted my mom to get my stuff and meet at the special place,” I said. 

“We will go with you since we want to know the full story too,” Angeline said. 

The bill was paid and we left. Even Draven came with us and I had a feeling he was there to stay. There is something about him that says mine and safety. I was at that point where I was coming up with another plan and I hope mom grabbed everything I needed. Also, at my secret spot was my Dragon Daxter. He was a strong Dragon and very tall with blue scales and the power to set things on fire. He came to me when I first got the ability to summon and even transform into a Dragon. It was fun when I did since it allowed me to set fire to my enemies. I can use that gift when people are in danger and it allows me to be strong enough to break through anything and ups my reflexes.  One day I will go to the Dragons since I can call them and meet their leader. It was rare that a Witch had this power. We might even have to tell Daxter’s leader and he will have questions when Draven shows up since no one is technically supposed to know about it. Luckily, the car fit everyone and Draven sat next to me. I wanted him to anyway since there was something about him that screamed mine. I also could tell there was something there and spending more time with him will make it clear. Maybe I will be happy once everything is settled since a lot is happening and we need to be all together instead of divided. I was going to try to do something to prevent Lisa from becoming an issue in the first place. She is bad for the coven and would make a lousy leader if she is ever allowed to take over. 

Everyone was silent. I told Felix where the hideout was since he needed to know in order to keep me safe here. I had to tell them since they do seem like they can be trusted. I couldn’t wait to go back since it was like my second home and a place I go to in order to think. The drive there was quiet which gave me time to think. There was one particular thing that will actually be able to stop Lisa and make the coven respect me more which is the artifact that will call the ultimate Dragon. I was doing research on it since it requires a certain kind of Witch and a half undead counterpart…Draven. I start to smile since a plan is forming. He can help me summon the Dragon since he is half Vampire. 

“So, there is an artifact that I have been researching and it will allow me to summon the Ultimate Elemental Dragon but it can only be done once I come into my full powers and it requires a Witch like me and a half Vampire. I was going to use a spell to find one, but now I don’t have to and you can be the key to help me summon the Dragon. Something is happening since I keep hearing reports of other covens being under attack by evil beings – Dark Witches,” I said looking at Draven. 

Draven’s eyes went wide, “Oh wow…Then you are the one we need to help us win. The Vampires and Dragons together will be a force to be reckoned with.” 

“There is a Dragon that helps me with Dragon magic where we are going called Daxter and he can get to the Dragons easily,” I said.

“Then we do have a chance to unite everyone,” Angeline said.

For once I was okay with everything, and my mom will be too, I hope. We arrived 30 minutes later and the place was a cave in the woods. I needed something far away from everything in case I wanted to do high level spells. There were even spells I can use to throw electricity or lightning balls and I needed destructive spells just in case or ones to summon stuff to me.  We got there and the car is parked. I got out eager to see mom and get to the bottom of things.

AngelWitch book 5 is Complete!!!

0

I finished book 5 yesterday which means once it is published 14 books. It wasn’t easy to finish since I was writing it through taking care of mom, and she passed away July 22nd. So after she passed I was a wreck and I still am at times. Watching someone you love slowly die just kills you. However, I finished the book yesterday and it came up to 17,344 words. A novella which is okay, and I will make a boxed set out of it too once book 6 comes out. I have already decided on the covers for some of it so I will put in the cover for that as well. The cover to book 5 is being worked on and the story is with the developmental editor. It was definitely hard writing when you want to cry but it kept me busy..I will post when I get the cover and more posts are on the way!
