Bewitching can be a beast. . . .
Once, I put a curse on a beastly and arrogant high school boy. That one turned out all right. Others didn t.
I go to a new school now one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago. I m not still here because I m stupid; I just don t age.
You see, I m immortal. And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years except for when to take my powers and butt out.
I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread house and ended up being hanged. After I came back from the dead (immortal, remember?), I tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I don t even want to think about it.
Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably shouldn t get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I think I have just the thing to fix that girl and it isn t an enchanted pumpkin. Although you never know what will happen when I start . . . bewitching.
