…and a Gargoyle Masque
But having dressed as Snow since her days at Academy, her best friend, Drusilla has decided it’s time for something new. Especially because she’s managed to finagle not only funding for the Gargoyle Masque, but a date with billionaire playboy warlock Dred Shadowins.
And when I say “magicks” I mean it. Wand, charms, and binding spells galore. Can you imagine the hassle to get into all that leather? Obviously, The Baroness never feels bloated or has a fat thigh day. Needless to say, Midnight is less than pleased. Especially since the leather isn’t pliable and she can’t stand up.
Of course, Drusilla doesn’t understand why she needs to stand up. It’s Dred Shadowins, after all, and most witches would be flat on their back faster than super sonic broom.
But Midnight doubts her favors are going to be looked upon, well, favorably. Since she tried to kill Dred with a cranberry to the eye. (He’s allergic.) She finally agrees to this costume (Isn’t the cover artist brilliant? She got it pretty spot on):
And is mighty thankful that she did because Dred shows up working his eye patch in a pirate costume.
I couldn’t. Especially not with those boots!
Neither could Midnight.
And she never dressed as Snow White again.
Middy Cherrywood does. She's got more warlock than she can hex with Dred Shadowins. He isn't just a billionaire playboy and Weekly Warlock centerfold. He's a spy for the High Chancellor, and he convinces Middy to pose as his fiancée for his latest mission. Too bad no one told his mother before she slipped Middy a potion that will make their sham engagement all too real in just ten days.
Dred Shadowins already has his hands full with cursed objects, possessed nuns, and dreams where Merlin makes him pay for taking his name in vain by relating his sexcapades with Nimue. But by the end of the mission, he's convinced his most difficult challenge is the hero's cape Middy's draped over his shoulders. Because he wants nothing more than to give her the one thing he may not be capable of providing: Happily Ever After.
