    Summary

    One of those nights, under the pale full moon, in the greenhouse, Ben made his first spell on his own.

     

     

     

    He could still remember the precise words, carefully written on virgin paper purified with sage and blessed with jasmine.

     

    “She will hear my call from miles away,
    She will whistle my favorite song,
    She has known pain, yet there’s no trace of it when she smiles,
    She can fix a car while blindfolded,
    She can flip pancakes in the air,
    and her favorite shape will be a star.
    Her eyes are both green and brown.”

     

     

     

    “What’s that?” Kydel had asked back then, her curious eyes looking at him.

     

    “It’s a spell,” he had explained, carefully picking from a few vases the remaining ingredients he needed, “it’s called amas veritas.”

     

    “A love spell?” his sister asked enthusiastically.

     

    “Quite the opposite,” he clarified, “The girl I dream of doesn’t exist, and if she doesn’t exist, my heart will never be broken.”

     

    Inspired by the movie Practical Magic (1988)
