Recipe for the Bristol Curse Cake
2 cups of beauty
3 tablespoons deception
1 cup of despair
1/3 cup revenge
2 cups of perceived unrequited love
A pinch of death
1 witch’s broken heart
1 teaspoon of mercury
2 cups of faith
Begin with Beauty and mix in deception. Allow to set for a month before adding 1 cup of despair and then 2 cups of perceived unrequited love. Once raised, add a pinch of death, one witch’s broken heart along with the mercury. Cover bowl with a black cloth and over the next four hundred years add revenge pinch by pinch. This will allow the mixture to reinvent itself. Once four hundred years has passed, lift black cloth high enough to add 2 cups of faith and watch the miracle of a curse being broken.
Adrianna Bristol stood before her grandmother's antique mirror and stared at the black velvet cloth covering it. She just couldn't believe her nana was gone. The mirror had hung in that exact same spot for the last twenty years, never once had it been moved from the alcove. Adrianna remembered the stern words of her grandmother when she was a child. Annabel Bristol had told her, "promise me Adrianna that you will never uncover the mirror. No matter what it may whisper to you, you must never remove the cover." Adrianna laid her hand against the cool velvet which covered the glass. As she walked away the mirror whispered to her, "you belong to me now. You belong to me." A four hundred year old curse has plagued the Bristol family since the 1600's. A curse born out of a love so rich and a betrayal so deep, that time itself has no power to stop it. Only Adrianna has the courage to find the truth behind the curse and set her family free. But will the Mirror release its darkest secrets?
