A WITCHES WRATH

Mirabella's anger grew and the clouds darkened, swirling winds caused the waves to surge and roil. Lightening ripped the sky open, and thunder shattered eardrums. Mirabella watched the ships struggling to port.

Waves overwhelmed most, but the yacht Abandon still floated. How apropos, she thought, abandon me to sail into your new life with my sister. "Not today," she roared!

Finally, the Abandon disappeared under a monstrous wave, Mirabella smiled. Vengeance is so sweet, she thought.

Nevertheless, the winds grew. A Hurricane formed. The gates to hell opened and Mirabella knew the indisputable power of wrath and her sister Isabella.
