"But mom, I don't get it!" Sabrina exclaimed.
"You're going to go live in Massachusetts for a little while with your Aunt Hilda and Aunt Zelda," Sabrina's mom explained.
"But why?" Sabrina asked. "I grew up here, all my friends are here, and now you're shipping me off to Massachusetts for some unknown reason?"
"The reason is not unknown," Sabrina's mom explained. "I'm going to Peru and your dad is, well, he's traveling the gala-globe, the globe."
"You don't have to take the job, mom!" Sabrina screamed. "You could continue teaching here! I hardly know my aunts!"
"You'll understand when you're older," responded her mom softly, swallowing a lump that had formed in her throat.
"Will you at least come to visit?" Sabrina asked in a much calmer voice than before.
Her mom's eyes were now shining with tears, she had to bite her lip to keep from crying. "I love you, Sabrina," she whispered.
"I love you too, mom," Sabrina said. Then they embraced each pair of eyes watering, full of tears.
"I'm just so excited about Sabrina arriving tomorrow!" Zelda said to her sister over dinner.
"Oh, me too, Zelly," Hilda responded. "I felt bad about dismissing our servants, though."
"It had to be done," responded Zelda, "we didn't want Sabrina to become spoiled."
"I'll miss them though," said Hilda.
"As will I," said Zelda, "but on a lighter note, won't it be exciting to bring a new witch into her powers?"
"I guess," said Hilda, "but couldn't we do that with servants?"
"No," responded Zelda. "Now eat, your food's getting cold."
Fifteen year old Sabrina stepped out of the cab, her eyes were red and puffy from all the crying she'd been doing the past couple of days. She couldn't believe her parents had pretty much abandoned her and forced her to go live with two people she barely knew. Her sweet 16 next month wouldn't be very sweet after all.
Sabrina stood in front of the big, white house in which her aunts lived. She took out the mirror from her purse and examined her face. "I wish these would go away," she muttered to herself, absent-mindedly pointing to her big, red, puffy eyes. As if like magic, her eyes became normal looking.
"That was weird," she said to herself, "but then again, weird things are always happening in my life."
"Now Sabrina should be arriving any minute now," Zelda said with excitement in her voice. "Remember, no talking, Salem, at least not until next month, and no doing magic until then, either."
"No talking?" Salem whined. "But what if I'm hungry? Or thirsty? Or I want a new toy? Or I'm afraid?"
"You'll just have to meow, and hope we understand," Zelda said. "If you talk in front of Sabrina, before she's ready to learn she's a witch, we'll skin you alive!"
"How would we do that without magic, Zelda?" Hilda asked. "As a matter of fact, how will we make food without magic? What if I want to make a love potion? What if I'm having a really bad hair day?"
"Enough complaining out of both of you!" Zelda exclaimed. "You should be happy that Sabrina's coming to live with us, even if it does mean we'll have to live like mortals until her sixteenth birthday!"
"There's the doorbell," said Zelda. She looked out the window and saw Sabrina standing outside the door with four large suitcases. "Come in, come in, you didn't have to ring the doorbell. After all, this is your home now."
"Yeah," Sabrina said.
"Let us get your bags," said Zelda. "Hilda?"
"Yes?" said Hilda.
"Aren't you going to help Sabrina with her bags?" Zelda asked.
"No, I'm good," Hilda said.
"Hilda!" Zelda said impatiently.
"But Zelly, they're so heavy!" Hilda complained. "How am I supposed to haul them all the way up the stairs without using—"
"Anyone want a snack?" Zelda asked, cutting Hilda off, and dropping the bag she was holding on Salem's paw.
"Ahhhhhhhhhhh!" Salem cried.
Sabrina was watching this whole charade, very confused. What was Hilda going to use? Why didn't Zelda want her to use it? Did the cat just talk? Sabrina wasn't stupid, something was going on here and she was going to find out what.
A/N Hope you liked it. Drop a review, please. I'm going to say Sabrina's birthday is on August 30th, and school starts on September 1st, but right now it's July 31st.
