Book Excerpt: Chapter 4, Portia, her dad & grandma
“What else do you want to know?” my dad asked me, and I knew I had to find
out about the next thing or my curiosity would kill me.
“Vance Mangum,” was all I said, not a question but a statement.
My dad sighed and sat back in his chair, shaking his head slightly.
“Vance has been a member of the coven for the past two years since he came
here,” Grandma said, when my dad didn’t say anything. “His aunt’s in our coven also. You met her tonight, the woman named Marsha. Only she isn’t exactly his aunt.”
“What do you mean?” I asked, curiously.
“Vance is under the protection of our coven,” Dad spoke up then.
“For what reason?”
“We’re hiding him,” Dad said, and he hesitated for a second before
continuing, “from his father.”
“What? Why?” I demanded to know.
“It’s Vance’s story to tell,” Grandma interrupted. “But please trust us, Portia. His father is a very bad man.”
“Is Vance a … a,” I faltered for the right word, “a warlock then or not?”
“He’s one of the most powerful warlocks I’ve ever seen at his age,” Dad
answered truthfully. “I’ve never encountered powers like his in someone so young or even in most adults.”
I grabbed my head between my hands and rubbed my temples while I rested my elbows on the table. My mind was throbbing with unanswered questions, but there was just too much to comprehend all at once.
Next stop is Acting Balanced.
