Eliza: Chapter Four: The Curse is Real

March 23, 2009

Light flooded Eliza’s face, and she scrunched it into a scowl. “Stupid roommate…always leaving the light on,” she muttered as she rolled out of bed. As she stumbled toward where the wall should be, Eliza realized there was no roommate, there was no light switch — there weren’t even any walls! The thought hit Eliza with a thud, and she sat on the edge of her bed. She was still here in Strangetown looking for Isadora, uncovering the family curse, living like a hobo on her lawn, and now dealing with crazy fortune tellers. Was it possible that a tiny old lady could be hiding Isadora…or worse?

Eliza rubbed her eyes as she got ready for work, blinking into the light. What was it? As she walked toward the source of this bright white light, her face began to twist into a look of disbelief. The plant was glowing. This silly plant that she had loved and cared for had sprouted golden simoleans overnight. “Oh dear…” Eliza said as she stared at the plant.

Suddenly everything was different.

Miss Emmy the fortune teller wasn’t crazy and apparently she was some kind of witch. Isadora really was gone. And the DiPotere women really were cursed.

On to Chapter Five

    Hey, I can see pictures again! Last time I looked at your site, all the pics had that message of doom from Photobucket (the one that says need to upgrade to a photobucket pro).

    Back to your story – cool – now that she believes – wonder what her next move will be?

    Awesome! Glad to know the pics are back. I was confused cause I should be no where near my bandwidth limit at PhotoBucket. I’m happy you’re enjoying the story!
