The Witch

By @MissPigeonMaster
The Witch

Mylene is a young Wiccan who just wants life and hope for her town and world. She hates the thought of harming magickal creatures. She wants to be free of the town, as she feels like something is watching her. Aaron is a hunter who tortures, hurts, and kills magickal creatures for money. he just wants out of this town to be free with his love, Evelia. He does what he has to do. Their paths meet, and nothing is the same from that point on. Will they be enough for this world, or too much?

Chapter 1

Him

*Mylene’s POV*

“ugh” I groan as I slowly get up to the sound of my blaring alarm clock. “what in the Mother Goddess’s name?”

The light from outside slowly pours into my room, making it impossible to keep my eyes closed. I open them into little slits. The walls of my bedroom are pink because I never got the chance to repaint them. I have a corner filled with plushies, and another corner with a bookshelf. Next to the book shelf is my desk, then my bed. Directly across the room is my closest and access to the bathroom (completely different things, don’t worry). I’ve lived in this room for fifteen years of my life and would take any chance to get out of it. Since I was three, I could hear high pitch squealing noises and people calling my name. Since I was ten I felt this… presence in my room. At times I feel like someone is watching me. That’s why I want to get out of this town. Always have. Always will. This is my house, but not my home.

*Aaron’s POV*

“HAH!” I yell into the darkness. “That’s right, run away coward!” I brush off my uniform and smile. That’s another job done. I walk back to town with the egg of the dragon and hand it over to a hooded figure, who in turn, gifted me a few coins. Three more missions. Three more missions and I could get out of this retched place called home. I could be free and run wild with Evelia.

As I walk back home with my payment, I notice a girl staring out the window of a small cottage at me. I lift my hand in a slight wave and she turns away in disgust. Huh. Normally I was appreciated for my job as a monster hunter. But this girl… she despised me. Every time I returned for the payment, she would sit in the windowsill, staring out at me, hatred burning in her eyes. I shrugged and walked away, the coins weighing down in my fist, seemingly heavier then before.

*Mylene’s POV*

I watched as the boy walked away with his satchel of gold. Why would he do that? Torture, hurt, and kill magnificent creatures like that for money? I would rather starve than do something so… so… evil! I took the steps two at a time as I ran down the stairs. “Bye Papi! I’m going out to the market!” I called to my father, who was sitting, crippled by the fireplace as he knitted.

“Bye my little spark! Be careful out there!” he looked up, love shining in his eyes.

“I will! I’m just going to get a pendant for Grammy!” I said, then closed the door behind me. True, I was going to buy Grammy a pendant for her birthday, but I was also going to find that hunter boy. I had a few, no, a lot of words to say to him.

Hello my little Pigeonlettes! This is a magick story, as I am getting into Wiccan stories and they are quite interesting. I could spend hours just reading about one small thing. I suggest you educate yourself, as one of my characters is Wiccan. *waggles eyebrows* comment any ideas, as I have no idea where this will head.

    This was really good!! Magical stories are always very fun to write, and read. First of all, though, does Mylene have any specific Wiccan powers besides spells and all that? And what kind of psychic is she? And does she have telekinesis?

      I’m not completely sure, I just drew her out of the blue and tried to give her a story. I’m learning about Elemental Witches, faery witches, and sea witches so she is probably going to be one of those. Her Grammy is either a fire elemental or a sea witch, again, not sure I just made Mylene and haven’t explored her much. I’ve just started learning about Wicca so I’m not sure what a psychic type even IS yet T-T she does not have telekinesis because she probably would’ve just stolen all of the things Aaron has captured/hunted and set them free. Thank you for reading and giving feedback! I appreciate it

    Okay. First of all what era does this story take place during? The setting makes my think modern day, then a different time the next.
    An employer would typically keep a hunter in debt to keep him working for him, no matter how much the hunter tries to stay clean from debts. Why was the hunting done so close to to town and the employer? Couldn’t the employer simply do the job himself if it was that close? Does every job he finishes ends in that exact spot and that is why she could conveniently look out to sneer at him? He’s describe as taking a few coins then next having a satchel full, why? Is he openly carrying the coins around or has he tucked it away? I would describe the father in another way then crippled since cripples have a harder time doing things.

    I’ve read the story. Pleases allow me time to reread the story and think on it. Other wise I like the direction the story is going. Also, like many others had told me multiple time (and I’m working on it) I noticed the constant which back/forth between past and present. I’ll respond more once I reread it. Thank you.
