Reflection of Death (Part 4)

As the car sped up to uncomfortable speeds, Sidney leaned over slightly, studying the woman, her ashen gray skin draped loosely over impossibly angular bones, black hair hanging in tightly wound ringlets, framing her dead, sinister face.

“You’re far more than a simple twelve year old, Sidney. Let’s just say your mental abilities, as raw as they are, may become exceedingly important in the coming wars,” said the witch, smiling.
