What's the furthest away you've ever been from the place you were born? How did you get there? Why did you go? Did you return or even want to come back to where you came from?

The furthest I have ever been from Crescent Harbor is when I had to rescue my sister Gilly from that Bulgarian "cowpoke", Jimmy Angelove. I ended up somewhere in Arizona at some sleazy no-tell motel trying to get her back home. She had a black eye and was not the same Gillian I knew and loved. Well, I mean she was, but how she could just let that son-of-a-bitch take her power from her like that is beyond me. For crying out loud! We're from a family of Witches!

Anyway, I thnk I not only went the furtheset away from where I came from in a physical sense but a spiritual one, too. I have never even remotely entertained the idea of killing someone, but when Jimmy went after Gilly and put us both in danger, all I could do was hit him with a frying pan. It was a lucky shot. I didn't know it could kill. Then again, I didn't know what that spell the Aunts had in the Book would do either!

We got back to Cresecent Harbor, but not without a whole truckload of troubles in between the time we got home to the time we got rid of our unwanted house guest in the form of Jimmy's Ghost. We got everything set back to rights, and thank God we were able to keep Gillian here, too. Jimmy was wound so tightly around Gilly's soul, like a boa constrictor or worse, a pit viper that would strike at anyone that came too close and drag them back to that hell or purgatory that he sat inside of like it was a lair.

As I said, I am back home, and there really is no other place that I want to go. This is home. It's been home for nearly four hundred years for our family. Why change it now?
