    Summary

    It’s been over ten years since the day Hecate turned her away and she believes her heart to be mended. Not fully smooth and whole, but enough that it should be able to hold together should she look up and have their eyes meet across a crowded room.

    It doesn’t.

    ****

    A retrospective of the 30 years that pass between when Hecate abandons Pippa at the broomstick display and when they reconcile at the Spelling Bee.

    Summary

    “Apprentice?” Miss Hardbroom’s voice is very strangled, like she’s chewing on glass.

    “Don’t you think that’s the ideal solution? Mildred needs a guide in the ways of the magical world. And who better to teach her than someone as dedicated to The Craft as yourself.” Miss Pentangle smiles sweetly.

    Mum is still looking between them all only now she seems about to laugh. “Yes, that’s right,” she leans in again, her smile every bit as sweet as Miss Pentangle’s. “How kind of you to offer, Miss Hardbroom.”

    “I never offered -”

    “I’m sure Mildred will benefit greatly from everything you can teach her. After all, you are rather an expert in The Code, I hear.”

    Miss Hardbroom continues to sputter.

    ****
    Pippa befriends Julie Hubble.

    Hecate suddenly finds herself with an apprentice.

    Mildred has watched The Parent Trap one too many times. But she should have been watching You've Got Mail instead.

    Summary

    Julie throws an arm up. “You’re…You…!”

    “I am indeed me, Nurse Hubble. I suppose an Ordinary medical education would teach you how to point out the very obvious,” Hecate quips, and oh why does she want to smile. This just doesn’t add up. They’re arguing, are they not? They always argue. It’s something they– Why does she keep blinking like an idiotic owl, and–

    Julie laughs. Loud and so very bright. It should grate and it doesn’t, and Hecate’s neck suddenly feels very warm. “Not Stevie, then.”

    Hecate blinks again. “What?”

    Two snapshots about music and dancing and just maybe, art.
