Viva la BBW! A lifelong reader of fantasy and paranormal fiction, Sara lives with her very patient husband and two small children who now begin every sentence with “As soon as you’re finished writing that chapter, could we….” Her license plate holder reads “My other car is a broom.” This is her first work of fiction.

Tara slid the electronic key into the slot and slipped in the hotel room door.
“Sophie, are you here?” Tara asked, but the room was silent. She went to the closet to hang up her dress, but when she swung open the door her stomach sank. All the clothes in the closet were pushed to one side, hers and Sophie’s clothes all bunched together. When they’d left last night it hadn’t been like that.
“Someone’s been in our room,” Tara whispered to no one in particular. The voice said “Next time you leave the room, protect it with your magic.”
Tara felt frustration begin to build. “I’m not a witch and I don’t know how to cast spells!” She said bluntly.
In a clear, forceful tone the voice said, “You are a powerful witch! Only lesser witches who are not descendants need to cast spells for simple magic. We work together, you need only to focus on the task that needs to be done and together we make it happen. Remember, I am free!”
“What do you mean, focus on the task at hand?” Tara asked.
“If you want to open the front door from where you stand, then focus on the door and tell it to open.” The voice said.
Tara turned and looked at the door, bringing all of her awareness to it. Without thinking she reached out as if to turn the knob on the door.
“Open.” She said firmly. Suddenly the door swung wide, whipping inward with such force it smashed into the wall behind it, sending tremors through the entire room.
There, standing in the open doorway was an astonished Sophie in an oversized white robe, key in hand and last night’s little black dress draped over her arm.
Sophie stared at Tara who was standing on the other side of the room.
“Did you do that?” Sophie asked, wide-eyed.
Tara looked just as shocked as Sophie. “Yeah, I think I did.”
“With my magic.” Tara answered quietly. Sophie’s eyes got big and she bounded in the door and slammed it behind her, shaking the room all over again. “Cool! Can you show me how?”
Tara explained what the voice said, and after several unsuccessful attempts of her own, Sophie threw her dress on the bed dejectedly. “This is totally unfair! Show me how you do it!”
Tara focused on the top drawer of the dresser across the room. The voice spoke up. “This time, try not to focus quite so intensely. Visualize the drawer opening slowly.” Tara did as the voice instructed and said, “Open.” The drawer glided open.
Sophie went over and looked in the drawer.
“Totally awesome!” She grinned, but then wrinkled her brow. “Hey did you go through my drawer? My stuff’s been rummaged through.”
Tara brought Sophie up to speed. She went on to explain what the voice had told her the previous night about Blake and his entourage, as well as Blake’s unnatural fascination with their jewelry and her suspicions about being followed.
Sophie listened intently, and then was quiet for several minutes.
“Any of this seem weird to you?—I mean besides the parts about being magically irresistible, being able to read minds and moving shit around without touching it—if this Blake guy is so rich and is a super powerful wizard, why does he have such a hard-on for these little trinkets of ours?”
It was the same question Tara had been asking herself. “I think there must be more of these things out there. Think about it, what if there were ten or twenty of these things and you could combine their power?”
Sophie thought for a second. “I guess if you knew what you were doing it could be like a magical nuclear bomb, the ultimate power.”
Tara hesitated. “Maybe not so much a bomb as a nuclear business tool; how valuable would it be if you could read your competition’s mind from a distance, or make your product irresistible to everyone? It seems to me that would be worth a lot, especially if you’re able to spread those powers out among lots of people for maximum effect.”
Sophie contemplated that for a moment. “Holy shit! That could be worth billions. You could steal corporate secrets, put your competition out of business and create products that people had no choice but to buy. And that’s just with the talisman we have!”
Tara’s blood turned to ice. She had seen how cutthroat the business world could be, and when big money was on the table, morals and ethics pretty much went out the window.
When Zwena said she saw dark times ahead she hadn’t been kidding.
“Sophie, we need to be really careful today. Careful about what we say, and careful about what we do.” She looked into her friend’s eyes to impress on her how serious she was. “We need to be vigilant, smart, and protect both our talismans—and our friends—okay?”
