a curse lifted

All Rights Reserved ©


Nina Evens, a 17 year old girl, she had silky long hair dyed crow black, prizing black eyes and a pretty face. She had an average family who had just moved to the area and already hated it;she had no friends, she was considered a freak because she believed in demons, ghosts, vampires and other different types of mythical creatures and wore black Gothic clothes.

She believed in mythical creatures because she was one, she was a witch, she could cast spells, summon spirits from beyond the grave and she could curse people. Her parents weren't witches, in fact they didn't even believe in the supernatural, they were strong christians, believing only in what the bible teaches.

She studied her spells and skills from an 100 year old coven of witches and Wiccans, they were all very skilled and powerful. She was surprised when they allowed her to join because she had very little skill when it came to witchcraft, but she soon became very powerful and skill full in the ways of the witch and the Wicca.

As she sat at her desk at school she couldn't help but wonder if they was a lost spirit in ivy vile, all the signs where dare, now all she had to do was to find out where it is, who it is and what they want. "hey Nina!" shouted a girl called Alice. Alice was one of the most popular girls in school. She had long glittering blonde hair, shining sea blue eyes and gently tanned skin. "so been hanging out with any vampire's lately?" Alice asked while laughing at her.

"No, but if I do, I will be sure to tell them to put you on their next feed list" Nina replied with an evil doll smile on her face. Alice stopped laughing and looked at her with looked like anger with a bit of fear in her eyes.

"Your a fucking freak Nina Evens!"she shouted at the top of her lungs "why don't you just go and die" and with that she waltzed away. Nina went back to looking out of the window when something caught her eye. It was a graveyard. It was on the top of a hill and looked abandoned.

While it seemed like just another old graveyard, Nina could tell that there was something dark and sinister about it.

As she looked out at the graveyard a boy came up to her. His name was Shawn he had spiky light blonde hair and deep blue eyes.

He was the most popular guy at school, he played football, played the guitar, head of the school council and was one of the only people to show any kindness towards her since coming to ivy town.

" hey Nina" he said trying to get here attestation "what are you staring at?" he asked looking out to where she was staring.

When he saw what she was looking at, his eyes widened and he backed up a bit. "why the hell are you staring at that place?" he asked while raising his voice a bit which caught the attestation of other students in the class. "why shouldn't I? It's just an old graveyard" she said with curiosity in her voice.

"just an old graveyard, yeah right." he replied "you don't know what happened there, do you?" Shawn said with fear. Nina shrugged her shoulders signalling that she has no idea what he is talking about.

"About 50 years ago two girls went in there after dark, the next day they were both found dead right outside the graveyard, then a few days later several police man went in there after dark, there bodies were found in the morning cut up into little pieces." When Shawn had finished, he looked like he was going to faint right on the spot.

Nina on the other hand was smiling like there is no tomorrow, she now knew where this evil prescience was and now all she had to do was to find out who or what it is.

"W-why are you smiling like that?" Shawn asked with a shaky voice and looking at her with worried eyes. "Oh, nothing really." she replied calmly, thinking about going into the graveyard

At the end of the school day, Nina was looking forward for tonight, she was going to see what is lurking in the graveyard, why it is here and if she could put a stop to it. As she was walking home she saw Shawn standing by an old oak tree that stood a few streets away from the school. He looked really worried and anxious about something.

"hey Nina!" he yelled at her while walking towards her. Nina stopped and let Shawn catch up to her. "hey" she replied "what's wrong? You look like something is bothering you". Shawn looked at her, then he looked to the ground with sad eyes.

"it's nothing really, it's just..." he replied in a sad voice "are you really sure you want to go in that graveyard?" he busted out.

Nina was shocked by his sudden out burst, he had always seemed like a level headed guy and not the type to have a sudden out burst.

"yes I am, why are asking?" she replied "hey is there something that is bothering you?" Nina looked at him worryingly.

Shawn looked at her with a scared look on his face. "it's just that ...well" he stuttered as he looked away. "listen, just don't go to far into the graveyard and don't stay in there for to long, can you do that? Please" he begged. Nina stared at him with wide eyes, not knowing what to say, this was the first time that anyone has said anything like that to her. She knew that she was worried about her but she did not know why.

"you don't have to worry about me" she said calmly "I'm perfectly capable of taking care of myself". After saying that she started to walk away. She than stopped and turned towards Shawn. "I'll see you at school tomorrow, okay" she said with a small smile on her face. Shawn nodded at this. After he did that she turned and walked away.

When Nina arrived home, she was greeted by her mother in the hallway, smiling at her gently. Her mother had long silky light brown hair, sapphire blue eyes and light colored skin. Her mother always wore light colored clothes and she wore a bit of makeup that highlighted her face "hello Nina" her mother greeted cheerfully as Nina walked through the front door.

"Did you have a good day at school?". Nina looked at her mother with a weird look, because whenever her mother asked her how her day was she would than try to get her to wear clothes that the girls in her class wear that looked like fairies had throw up on and she would also try and get her to give up on her beliefs of witchcraft and make her go back to Christianity. "It was fine" Nina replied with a straight face, looking at her mother straight in the eyes.

As she was about to climb the stairs and go to her bed room, her mother stepped in her way, holding a pile of fashion magazines in one hand and five shopping bags in the oven.

"I got these from town today and I want you to look at them and see what they look like on you" she said her smile never leaving her face, only growing bigger like a chested cat. Nina saw the look in her mother's eyes that said that she wanted her to get her to change her style to a more girly one that Nina did not like.

Taking a deep Nina looked at her mother and said in a calm voice "look mother, I am not going to be someone I am not, so stop trying to get me to change." then she started to walk up the stairs to her bed room, leaving her mother on the stairs with a sad and shocked look on her face.

At 5:00pm, as Nina was doing her homework in her room when her father came into her room. "Nina, we need to talk" he said with a serious look on his face. Nina father was a very stricken man that liked to have things his way and only his way. He believed that men were the dominant species and everything came after. Nina looked up from her work and stared at her father with a blank stare waiting for her father to continue and say what he wanted to say.

"I have had just about with all your stupid witch nonsense" he said with anger growing in his eyes "I refuse to have any more of this ridicules stories about ghosts and vampires, I want none out in my house, am I cle-" his was caught of by Nina's deadly glare.

Nina glared darkly at her father, challenging him to continue. She felt her anger starting to offer flow. All her father has tried to make her be something that she wasn't and since she started to practice the wiccan faith it has only intencify

She stood from her desk and walked towards her father with her head up and walking like she was on a silent war path. When she reached her father, she stood tall and said "if you make me give up the one think truly love and good at than you won't have me in your life" she said strong and proud, "this is my life and the path that I have chosen to take, just accept it" and with that she pushed her father out of the door and slammed it in his face. She leaned her back against the door, closing her eyes and taking deep breaths to calm her rage wanting to boil over. 'only a little while longer, and I would be out of here and I will never come back'
