Sara’s emotionally abusive husband dies unexpectedly. She’s struggling to reclaim the intelligent, independent person she was before she married. She vows never to let a man take over her life again. Now she’s part of a special team, training to help other women.
Mac is has been responsible for training women in special ops techniques so they are prepared when they are challenged to save other women. When he meets Sara sparks fly between them. He wants her to quit the training and let him take care of her.
Sara graduates and now she and her team have to save Sara’s daughter from a serial killer. Can Mac step back and trust her in a dangerous situation? Can Sara and Mac resolve their issues, or will they go in opposite directions?
“Ohmigawd,” Diane groaned. “I had no idea you guys were all nuts. You see people’s past, see ghosts and talk to ghosts. This is all a big hoax. I didn’t realize I signed on with a bunch of nut cases. Let me out of here.”
“Diane, please sit down. It may be difficult for you, but please respect your teammates.”
Diane slouched back in her chair.
“So you can hear the ghosts talk?” Mr. Mogee asked.
“Like I said, sometimes. I don’t hear anything right now.”
“You’ll need to work on being more open and receptive so the ghosts can find you easier. How often do you see them?”
“It depends. I didn’t used to see them at all. Then occasionally, maybe every few months or more one would come up to me. I see them more often now.”
“Ah, it means your gift is becoming stronger. Do you sense anything, like Sara?”
“Nope, suddenly they’re there, in a room or on the street. They come up to me and usually ask me to help them get a message to a friend or family member.”
“That’s good. Stay open and continue to help them. The more you help them the stronger you will become. Now Diane, let’s see what talent you have.”
“I don’t have any stupid talents and seeing ghosts or reading palms isn’t a talent. It’s a damn freak show.”
“No,” Diane snapped.
“Ah, what are you feeling right now?’
“What do you mean? Diane glared at him.
Mr. Mogee smiled. “In your gut, what are you feeling right now?”
Diane stared at him. “Nothing.”
Diane crossed her arms over her chest, sank her chin down and glared at the man. “Something’s upsetting Sara. She’s afraid for someone.”
“Good, very good Diane. Sara?”
Diane continued to glare at the man. “Big deal, it’s a gut reaction,” she mumbled. “Anybody can tell when a person’s worried. Read their damn body language.”
Sara stared at Diane. She wanted to deny it, but if they were a team, honesty was important. “You’re right, Diane. I’m worried about my daughter. I’m afraid she might be in danger.”
“Thank you, Sara. You see Diane, you sense what people are feeling or seeing. We’ll work on it so you understand it better. What about the other thing?”
“What other thing?” Diane shot him an angry look.
“I understand you’re a witch.”
“Aw, shit.” Diane tried to slide farther down in her chair.
“You’re a witch? I mean a real honest to gosh witch?” Sara stared at her.
“Okay, I’m a witch. I can cast spells, big friggin’ deal.”
Mr. Mogee smiled. “Yes, Diane, it is a big deal. It could come in very helpful for your friends. Maybe you can explain to them how it works over dinner tonight. You know how you don’t wear the hat and use a broomstick?”
“Okay, I get it. I don’t understand any of this, but I’ll try and explain how spells work and that there really are witches out there.”
“Good and don’t forget to get in touch with your gut as well. We’ll work on that. Diane comes from a long line of witches. You might get her to talk about her family. Okay ladies, your assignment is to work on your talents by taking these items. See if you get any message or information from them. Share them, pass them around. Do you have any questions?” Mr. Mogee handed each woman an item.
They glanced at what they had received.
“This looks like a man’s glove.” Sara looked up.
Mr. Mogee had disappeared.
“We’ll figure it out.” Maggie stared around the room.
“Sometimes you can use a spell. It causes people to see, or not see, what is really there. I’ll check it out.” Diane offered.
What a fascinating bit here. She’s a witch?
Although I didn’t have a clue who was saying what, I thought the back-and-forth was entertaining.
Sounds like things aren’t going to be easy with Diane.
Rather curious as to how a witch denies the supernatural phenomenon of ghosts.
