So Happy Together

Honestly, I don’t know why people are so negative. Life is good! We are all so lucky to be alive and living in this wonderful, magical world.
Some people think I’m naive but that’s not the case. I just recognize that I have it pretty good and try to act accordingly. I love bright colors (especially purple) and nice shoes. I don’t dwell too much on the past.
Take a woman who walked into my office at the Purple Door Detective Agency today. Her name is Aine (pronounced Ann). She’s a banshee from Ireland looking for a man named O’Neill who she is supposed to serve – bringing him to the underworld or some such – when he dies. She’s so dark and threatening right away. There’s just no reason for it.
As soon as I recognized her ‘talents’, I knew she was the right one to help me find the person who killed my partner, John. He and I were also lovers. His death hit me hard but did I let it get me down? Absolutely not! I plan to kill whoever murdered him and be at peace with it.
Aine threatened me if I didn’t help her. Like anything she could do would matter to me. I’m a pretty powerful witch – not someone to be trifled with. But if I want her help, I’m going to have to help her find O’Neill.
I’m not worried about that either. Things just seem to work out for me. Life’s not all rainbows and blue skies, but it’s not all dark clouds and black magic either. Sometimes when my reflection talks back to me in the mirror, I just ignore it and turn away.
It’s good to be a witch!
