A man is innocent until proven guilty. Why isn't that true for witches and their familiars too?
Arc kept his end of our bargain and helped me with my family's problem. Now it was time to return the favor.
He's been on the run ever since waking up next to his dead on again/off again girlfriend. He swears he didn't kill her. I believe him.
He also says she wasn't in his bed when he went to sleep. That's a harder pill to swallow. Arc is a very powerful witch in his own right. And from what I've seen, when he sets a ward, it sticks.
So how did the killer not only get through his wards, but plant poor Sonya's body right next to him without him knowing it?
If that's the way it really went down, then some top-level witches must be involved. Possibly even council witches. The very thought scares the crap out of me. Council witches are scary. I should know. My aunt Opal is one of them
And, yes, she scares me too. On pretty much a daily basis.
Unfortunately, that isn't where the bad news ended. Arc and I had another shock in store for us when we reached out to his family for help.
This one would change our lives forever.
