Sapphire and Sage - WIP


Twin sisters, separated as toddlers, soon find out that they are the current generation in a long line of powerful witches. Their line also seems a bit cursed, death tends to follow them. Their ancestor was drowned in a lake to spare her small child from being burned at the stake. Their real parents were murdered for their power. Just before their 25th birthday they are reunited and learn the truth about their family. Shortly after discovering their heritage they become targets and must learn to control their new powers before it's too late. Will they survive being hunted to continue their bloodline or will their heritage end with them?



As she jogged up the driveway, Sage brushed her sweat soaked bangs off her forehead with the back of her hand. She glanced down at her watch and smiled; she just beat her previous record by a full two minutes. She did a little victory dance and jogged the rest of the way up the stairs, stopping when she noticed the padded manila envelope propped up against her door. The mailman wouldn't have dropped the mail off this early, it was only a few minutes past 7am. 

Sage tugged the earbuds from her iPod out of her ears and picked up the envelope, checking for a return address but the only thing written on the package was her name scrawled in some sort of calligraphy type writing. She wondered who would have placed it there and why they hadn't just mailed it to her. She shrugged and tucked it under her armpit and unlocked her front door.

As Sage stepped into the kitchen she inhaled the scent coffee and smiled. She loved the way it felt to curl up on the couch with a hot cup and just savor the quiet before getting ready for the day. Her routine jog in the morning left her mind clear and she could just relax and enjoy the coffee. Usually. This time instead her mind kept going to that envelope, almost as if it were calling out to her to open it. Curiosity got the best of her and wandered over to the counter where she had left it.
