Never Say Goodbye
(Nancy's Curse, Book 1)
by C.A. Bell
genre: Paranormal Romance
About the Book:
When Angelica placed a protective curse over her granddaughter, Nancy, in a bid to keep her safe from society and her own powers until she was old enough to understand, she had no idea of the consequences.
It’s October 31st, and a grown-up Nancy is holding her annual Halloween party. Only this year she strays away from her traditional festivities that include her famous Halloween punch, and dancing to the Monster Mash, and opts for a spookier night. She will be holding a séance with the help of her friends and her new Ouija board. Little does she know that the protective curse her grandmother secretly cast over twenty-seven years ago is lifted tonight, and her true powers are finally presented to her.
A spirit is summoned. But only time will tell just who he really is.
Nancy reaches into the box and pulls out the instructions. In the booklet, she’s introduced to the board, its uses and origins, and the fact that it isn’t a tool of the Devil. It’s ‘a device used by the ancient Chinese for talking with the dead.’
She smiles. Her grandmother had always told her that witches were perceived to be the Devil’s wenches. That’s why people hated them so much. She’d also told her that not all witches were evil, nor did they work for the Devil. They were women with powers, and men hated it, so they were associated with the Devil’s name in hope that civilisation would be fearful of them.
Suddenly saddened at the thought of her dear grandmother no longer being here, Nancy moves onto the next paragraph. It tells her that the more people - or ‘energy’- she has for the Ouija, the better. This is good; she’s invited three of her closest friends over, two of whom are bringing their other halves, so they should have enough wattage. She would have invited more but her dining table only seats six. Having deckchairs scattered about the place would have just killed the mood she was trying to create.
She skims through the rest of the passage until her eyes halt and backtrack to something rather alarming.
‘Never use the Ouija board in your home.’
Slightly unnerved, an invasion of goosebumps tickle her skin, resulting in a shiver. Her mind starts to wander. What if this does work? What if I call a spirit here and don’t know how to send it back? She shakes her reservations away along with the gooseflesh, and places the booklet face down on the table before heading faster than usual to the kitchen for a glass of wine. It was too late to be concerned about the warning. Her guests would be here soon, and she’d promised them all a spooky night.
