Book One – The Cimaruta
A crack of light, surrounded by black, billowing smoke filled the area in front of Persephane’s
window. Angelica jumped up, shoved Persy behind her, while folding Persy’s hand closed over
In seconds, a female shape, all in black, formed.
“Melanthios!” yelled Angelica. “How dare you…” She scowled and started to raise her wand –
Snap! Blue light filled the room, Angelica fell on her side to the floor. Persy’s face crunched
with fury, she leapt over her Mom, holding the Cimaruta straight-armed at Melanthios.
Melanthios swung her wand to point at Persy and smirked. “Why, niece, how lovely to finally
meet you. I’ve been scouring the earth for that amulet. Should have figured my miscreant sister
“Disarm,” screamed Persy, having drawn out her wand.
Melanthios easily swooped out of the way of the casting, coming back with, “Fixatious.”
Persy was not about to get frozen in place, so Melanthios could grab her Cimaruta. Not
happening. Not today.
Persy dropped to the floor, rolled away from Melanthios, but the casting caught her lower left
leg, which now dragged on the ground.
Melanthios’s mouth twitched up on the right as she moved in for the snatch.
She didn’t see the green and turquoise, foot long vortex form behind her head. As it rose, the
whirring became loud and louder. “Stopiare!” The maiming curse. Melanthios dropped like a
stone to the floor, her body faded to a ghostly hue and vanished.
Benson appeared out of the vortex, fluttered like leaf onto Persy’s lap.
“Benson,” she cried. “Benson. Are you ok?”
Slowly his large composite eyes refocused. “Oy. That took it out of me, Perse. But, yeah,
yeah. I think I’m good.”
Persy gently laid him on a cushion and went to her Mom, who was struggling to sit. “Mom?”
“Hey, my darling. I’m good. De-fogging,” Angelica gave a small smile.
Persephane reached for her Mom to give her hand a supportive squeeze, then the air
around her shimmered. “What…?”
It was as if she was watching the whole scene again. The flash of blue, Melanthios, her Mom
falling and Benson, but this time, Melanthios turned in time and cast the Death curse.
Benson’s vortex vanished. A candle snuffed out. He fell to the floor, motionless. Persy
screamed. She was back in her room, her time and Benson was fine on the pillow.
“What, Persy?” asked Angelica.
“I saw…I saw…I, I.”
Benson flew over, landing on her hand. “What, love?”
Persy’s eyes flicked down at Benson. “You were dead. She killed you.”
