But this year, I’m thinking of my friend Cookie Crandall, who's back after being gone for some time. She is a witch, practicing the the spiritual system of Wicca. A few years ago we gathered at Vera’s house for a ritual and the more I think about it, the more I cherish this memory. I love ritual—and this was so special—but, unfortunately it was interrupted by the police.
This year, we are talking about revisiting the ritual and making it a part of our lives every year.
Here’s my memory of the night (excerpt from SCRAPPED, book #2 in the series):
“Bother,” Vera said. “Let’s ignore it. Go on, Cookie.”
Cookie picked up the water bowl, and the knock at the door became louder and more forceful.
“Vera Matthews,” a male voice said. “It’s the police. Open up please.”
I can’t help but wonder where this night would have gone without that interruption. How do you celebrate Halloween?
