Orvella acted hastily.  She turned the drip up so the transfusion would flow faster. She removed the black ribbon from her wrist and wrapped it around Viola Grace’s fragile one.

“Your protection! What are you doing?” Henrietta’s eyes grew wide.

“I have no choice. They are here. You must leave, quickly!” She pushed Henrietta back.

“But you will die!”

“Then I will go down fighting!”

Orvella’s transformation completed, and she shoved Henrietta into a closet and tossed a magnet behind her. As she disappeared, a cackle filled the room. Three sets of eyes looked at the bag, now nearly empty.

      Thank you! It is a really cool name. I’m going to be sad when she’s gone.

    I wanted to know who ‘they’ were, and I wanted to know WHY they were hounding Orvella. More than that, I wanted to know who Viola Grace was that Orvella was willing to give up her protection to save her.
