Day 10 Prompt: Makes you cry.
Song choice: Beautiful Night, by Paul McCartney
Listen on YouTube: https://youtu.be/7x5OLojSJMo
This song is NOT for my current WIP but is on my fantasy soundtrack for book 1 in the series, A Thin Witchline Between Love & Hate. This song plays at the annual Witches Gala Lucie Bellerose is forced to attend. Loren and Michelle Heatherworth also attended. While I chose this song for Lucie and Templeton, this certainly could transfer to Loren and his wife.
Scene: Loren is a close friend of Lucie’s late aunt. He took on the role of advocate for Lucie in the Congress of Empire Witches and advised her as a father might when she went to him for guidance. Loren is an elder in the Congress, and he and Michelle are natural witches.

RE: the scene below. I don’t know if this will make you cry, but if you only knew the depth of love Loren has for his wife and how not having her near breaks his heart…
…Loren returned to sipping his tea. Around us, the house was quiet. A mantel clock tried to fill in the space with its muffled ticking.
Realization struck me. “You sent Michelle away, didn’t you?”
“I did when we didn’t know what was happening,” he answered, clearing his throat before he spoke again. “I know I should bring her back, especially since I’m an elder and need to set an example, but…” His voice trailed off, and he shrugged. “Love can cloud judgment. In this case, I’d rather look like a fool than risk Michelle’s life. I will stay here in the Empire, but I will not let her come home until we know what caused the *spoiler*.”
