3. Ellie-Part Three

****

By nine o'clock PM, Ellie was seeing the darkness. Candle purred. Its eyes focused on the bedroom; its tail shifted to the left, as it snoozed near the bed. The other cats purred on the light, brown chairs to the right. She dreamed of witches, warlocks, and bon fires. She was about to sleep again when she heard a loud crashing noise outside her bedroom. Ellie got out of bed, sighed, then put on her red slippers. The lamp light was turned on. She opened window, and saw a ten year old boy running away from a High Warlock. "He's here! Lord Dore! Let me inside!", he shouted. Ellie frowned. She watched the boy jump into the bedroom. He was dressed in a servant's clothes. His brown, curly hair was full of sweat. "You're dirty", she said. "Yes, I was running away from my Master. I'm Todd". Ellie nodded. "Master! But this isn't like the Olden Days. I'm Ellie", she said. She stared out of the window. All of New York was different, as if the city had changed overnight. "I've heard about you. You're the New Witch of New York; you're dangerous to other witches", Todd said. "Me. But I'm a girl", she said. Todd smiled. "A magical ​witch with powers". Ellie nodded. ​I'm not going to get any sleep tonight; I'm not going to deal with strangers who hate me​, she thought to herself. Todd waited for movement to come. When nothing happened, Ellie watched Candle. "What's going on?", Ellie asked him. "It's just the War of the Great Witches and Warlocks", Todd answered her. She shook her head. "I hate wars. Mother tells me bad things will happen if there's wars...human wars that is", Ellie said. And she patted Candle, as Todd noticed a chair.

"May I sleep here, Ellie?". 

"Yes, of course", she said.

And Todd smiled.
