Well, that’s it. It’s time. I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time -- for more than one reason. So many things could go wrong… and that’s not even counting the magic.

I’ve checked and rechecked great granddad’s calculations to make sure the alignment is indeed taking place tonight. Everything checked out, of course; he knew what he was doing. I went to the clearing two days ago to make sure the circle was undisturbed. While I was there, I marked the trees to find my way more easily. By day, I could get to the place with my eyes closed, but the last thing I want is to get lost in the woods tonight. Hunter would never let me hear the end of it. I’ve packed, unpacked and repacked my supplies twice. I keep thinking that I’m forgetting something but no, it’s all there: sleeping bag, candles, three jars of colored pigments. Lube.

I almost forgot the lube.

I guess we don’t need lube, not it we keep things simple, but I rather hope we will need it. I hope Hunter won’t try to run off once he realizes why I brought him there. Not that he could run off, not before the spell is complete, but he might try.

How is it possible to know someone as well as I know him and still have no idea how he’ll react?

Maybe I should just go alone and do the spell on my own. That way I wouldn’t risk losing my best friend. I don’t know what I’d do if I lost him.

But what if it works like I hope it will? What if I don’t lose him? What if we become more than friends tonight?

It’s got to be worth the risk…
