First, choose your victim. Remember, revenge is a dish best served cold.

Collect the ingredients; this may take some time, some are specialised.

Gather the coven.

Wait for a full moon.

Deep breath - are you sure you want to do this? Yes? Do they really deserve it?

Oh, I understand. He used you. Bastard. Next time you’ll find someone better. I promise.

I’ve got a lovely spell which causes impotency if you’d rather?

No? This one is irreversible, you see.

I know, it hurts. It always does.

But you definitely want him dead?

Of course.

Very well, shall we begin?

  1. I liked the tone of the senior witch. I have the feeling the poor guy on the end of the spell isn't going to get to go slowly...

  2. Great stuff - I love how this is structured. Thanks, Rowan.

  3. Thank you! Glad you bothe enjoyed it. :)

  4. The matter of fact tone is great, I love how it leaves room for the menace to seep out rather than smack you.
