My stomach lurched when she uncovered the little girls’ leg. There was a long gash on it and it was oozing a very unhealthy looking substance, I swallowed trying to keep my stomach settled. Turning I glanced at Kismet over my shoulder; he was sitting beside Tremor and watching intently. I know, for fact that I healed his leg – could I do the same for this child? I didn’t know but we were going to find out. Nodding to the woman I got up and went back to get some water and one of my smaller throwing knives. I knew what needed to be done in theory, I just wasn’t sure if I could bring myself to do it. Digging in one of the bags I pulled out a candle and matches.
The man looked uneasy and speaking quickly at his wife and while I didn’t understand the words—her tone was universal, she told him to shut up. Kneeling back down beside them, I set the candle on the ground and lit it. I’d seen this done and read about it, but the exact steps were a mystery to me.
About the Author:
Jacqueline Paige lives in Ontario in a small town that’s part of the popular Georgian Triangle area. No one has ever heard of Stayner, so she usually tells people she lives “near Collingwood” and no, she doesn’t ski at Blue Mountain or at all, in fact she’s not even fond of snow.
She began her writing career in 2006 and since her first published works in 2009 she hasn’t stopped. Jacqueline describes her writing as “all things paranormal”, which she has proven is her niche with stories of witches, ghosts, physics and shifters now on the shelves.
When Jacqueline isn’t working at her ‘reality job’ or lost in her writing she spends time with her five children, most of whom are finally able to look after her instead of the other way around. Together they do random road trips, that usually end up with them lost, shopping trips where they push every button in the toy aisle, hiking when there’s enough time to escape and bizarre things like creating new daring recipes in the kitchen. She’s a grandmother to four (so far) and looks forward to corrupting many more in the years to come.
