Severed Ties is a story of close friendships, addiction and magic.
Severed Ties - By the use of divination and magic, some ties can never be severed
Consulting tarot, ordinary playing cards, astrology, and spell-casting—Frankie and Sandra set forth to free Candice from the dangerous situation she is in.
Read an excerpt:
Sandra slid to the edge of the bed and stood. She retrieved her tarot deck, and Frankie grabbed her playing cards. Each held their deck face down in one hand and covered with their other hand. The two paused to become calm and centered. While they shuffled their deck in unison, they spoke, “Spirit Guide, reveal to me, am I carrying out the right action in finding Candice? Please reveal to me that which will be, one…two…three…”
Calvin relaxed on the couch. He watched them and listened as he attempted to take in what they were doing. Suddenly, the ceiling light blinked on then off. He felt the room chill. He looked upward and could see an orb, shining in a rich glow, float through the window. He didn’t know what to think. He just stared at it, and said not a word. He observed the orb, brilliant and illuminating, quietly with a slow glide of movements, move through the room, and descend. He witnessed the sparkling orb transform into a faint image of an older woman. Her aged hair in a tight bun, and she wore a long, billowing cotton coat. She floated between Sandra and Frankie. He watched in disbelief as she transformed back into a barely there, visible orb.
The girls cut their decks with their left hand and restacked them. They tossed the top card on to the bedspread, upright.
Similarities, in the tarot and ordinary playing card existed.
Frankie turned over the nine of diamonds, Sandra, the Magician.
“You can pull this off,” Sandra beamed, looking in her eyes. “With the Magician, Frankie, you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. You need to be daring, and success will follow. It’s time to stretch your limits.”
