Emma hated birthdays. And there were very few things she hated.
She had a long list of things she didn’t like. Public speaking, people
making fun of her dog for his (lack of) looks, creating curses, horror movies,
being late, witch high society, karaoke…they all held a spot on the list. But
birthdays held a special spot on another, shorter list. Underlined, written in
red ink and with three exclamation points.
Her human friend insisted that she couldn’t hate birthdays. What was there
Attention, Emma had always supplied. It was an easy answer, one Leah
always laughed off. And it was half true. Emma really did hate the attention.
If given the choice between everybody in a room raising a glass, all eyes on
her, or letting twenty thousand spiders crawl over her body, it was a nobrainer. Come one, come all arachnids.
Witches didn’t celebrate birthdays. Why celebrate a day you were born?
Where was the achievement? Witches celebrated magic. The lineage, the
strength, the rarity. And despite the debatable achievement of being born into
a respectable family, Emma’s magic was less potent than watered-down
vodka. Such was the way of younger siblings. Society—followed closely by
her mother—had written her off as useless as far as magical status was
concerned. No, her usefulness lay elsewhere.
Her other reason for hating birthdays. The reason that had steered the
course of her life ever since her mother had seen her playing with a Higher
family’s son and seen a golden ticket. There were, after all, two ways a
family could rise to Higher family status. One way was to distinguish
themselves with magic.
The other was to marry into it.
But that was the past. And now she was here, in Chicago, surrounded by
humans and their human preoccupation with being free to live as they
wanted, following hearts and passions and squeezing every drop of the
lemons life gave them. Which was how Emma found herself reluctantly
taking a shift manning front of house at her bar, after their full-time bartender
had thrown caution to the excessive wind that gave the city its nickname and
followed her boyfriend to Seattle. Well wishes and all that, but damn her for
leaving Emma in this position.
Emma wasn’t good with people. She loved watching them, but shove her
into a situation where she had to make small talk and be interesting, and it
had the same effect as using a sickening curse on a house plant. The leaves
would wither and drop off, just like any conversation she was forced to be
part of. The fact that she co-owned a human bar sometimes made her
question her own mind.
