I knew what the cards said, and she was right. Something was coming. I just didnโ€™t know what.

Then almost as if on cue, thunder pierced through the square. Out of nowhere, Marceline came racing towards us with Nanette trailing behind her. โ€œHurry! Pack it up! Weโ€™ve got to get out of here!โ€ she shouted, her face withered with worry.

โ€œWhatโ€™s wrong?โ€ I asked, jumping up from the table.

โ€œThereโ€™s been an attack on the witches.โ€ Marcelineโ€™s chest heaved as she tried to force the words from her lips.

โ€œAn attack! What? Where?โ€ Cora asked.

โ€œUp on Royal,โ€ said a breathless Nanette. Her once warm caramel complexion paled as though sheโ€™d seen a ghost.

Coraโ€™s posture was rigid. โ€œHow do you know?โ€

Still gasping for air, Marceline, said, โ€œWe were on our way down here with Edith when her mom showed up in a panic. She just kept saying something about a younger witch from her coven being attacked.โ€

My eyes shifted from Nanette to Cora, then back to Nanette. โ€œYou donโ€™t think itโ€™s him, do you?โ€ I asked even though I was pretty sure of the answer. Though there had been none in my lifetime, Oliverโ€™s attacks against the witches of New Orleans had been legendary.

โ€œWho else would attack the witches?โ€ said Cora, then her eyes fell to the Tarot deck on the table. She tugged on my arm, returning my attention to the cards. โ€œDelphineโ€ฆโ€

There sitting on top of the deck – face up – was the Ten of Swords.

Betrayal. Mistrust. Treachery.

He felt her spell? How did heโ€”

โ€œBecause I am a spirit walker, like you. I walk the shadows we both know.โ€

โ€œIโ€™m not a witch. Youโ€™ve made a mistake. I donโ€™t know what that even means. Please, just go. You are scaring me. This isnโ€™t funny.โ€ She swallowed hard. He was definitely powerful, more powerful than she was, than any of her family. Oh god, what would they think when she didnโ€™t show up tonight? Would they even come looking for her or chalk it up to Andie is always late, probably at home with a book. Surely theyโ€™d look for her.

โ€œMy family is waiting for me. They know Iโ€™m coming.โ€ She hoped she spoke with more conviction than she felt.

He ignored her, waving his hand as if literally brushing the idea away. โ€œYou are one like me. Like us. Different, maybe, but the same.โ€

There was that word again. Different. โ€œI donโ€™t know what you think you saw or whatever else you think happened, I am not a, a, a spirit walker. Iโ€™m a . . .โ€

He smiled. โ€œYes?โ€

โ€œIโ€™m . . .โ€

โ€œYouโ€™re a witch.โ€
