A/n: I am so, so sorry at my lack of contributions on this website but I normally do my fanfics while at work but this site is now blocked there and at home I hardly have chance to check so it doesn't look likely that a lot of my fics will get finished for a while but I'll try my best to get them up and running again for anyone who's still reading them. Until then here's a fic I've been working on at work for a while, I've completed this whole story so you won't be waiting long for the updates only to build the suspense :-P
Forget Me Not
It's been 5 years since Morgan ended things with Hunter. Their own separate destinies were taking its toll on their relationship, they were hardly spending time with one another and it wasn't fair for them to hold each other back. Hunter wasn't willing to let Morgan go but he knew that ultimately she was right. But fate keeps intervening, after promising each other not to see each other again they end up walking back into each others lives and realise the enormity of their mistake but will it ever work out?

Don't lose faith!!
They were inseparable, spending every moment they could together. They are muirn betha dans, soul mates. Destined to be with one another, forever.
But each had their own destiny apart from one another their own paths that makes them happy. Hunter was busy setting up the New Charter, a new and improved council that should change the lives of Wiccan's everywhere. Morgan was a newly initiated witch upon returning from the Wiccan school in Scotland she had become dedicated in becoming a healer, after finishing college she planned to attend medical school.
Hunter's work took him all around the world and with Morgan staying in the one place it was taking its toll in their relationship.
Their next decision had broken their hearts, they had decided that they needed to be happy and to follow their destined paths and while they were doing that it conflicted with their own destiny to be together. So they broke up promised each other never to see one another again and to live their lives as if they had never met.
The pair were distraught over loosing one another of course but it was in their best interest. Their lives were taking them down such different roads that they'd end up falling apart eventually anyway. Not seeing each other enough was killing them and when they finally did it was never enough time.
It was a hard decision but they felt it was the right one.
Five years later…
"Morgan we're going to be late" Harvey said, "We're meeting at Jenna's tonight,"
It was Wednesday night and time for their weekly Kithic meeting. Almost the entire coven had moved to New York City upon graduating high school for college some had stayed behind and some had left the coven entirely. Morgan was the coven leader after he left she was allowed to take charge, now that she was an initiated witch. Sky had returned to England after another bust up with Raven so Kithic was left in Morgan's fully capable hands.
Remaining in the coven were Jenna Ruiz and Simon Bakehouse who had plans of moving in together, Raven Meltzer, Sharon and Ethan Sharp, who were now married and expecting their first child. Bree Warren and Robbie Gurevitch, Morgan's best friends, they were no longer a couple but were still good friends. And finally, Matt Adler.
Alisa Soto had moved to Gloucester to be with her boyfriend Charlie, and is living with her Uncle Sam while at college.
While Kithic were at college a number of other Wiccan's, blood witches and non blood witches alike had been drawn to the coven some because they heard of the infamous Morgan Rowlands and some because they just wanted to belong to a serious coven.
Among the new recruits were non witches Helen Peterson, Lucas Judd, and Kelly Priestley and blood witches Seamus O'Hara a Leapvaughn from Dublin, Maya Glass a Rowanwand, Jessica Freeman a Burnhide and Harvey King a Brigtendale.
Morgan and Harvey had met in Biology at NYU, they were both heading for Medical school. Morgan had sensed right away he was a blood witch and had invited him to their Wednesday night circles, he was awed when she introduced herself as Morgan Rowlands because he, like many other blood witches, had heard about her. They had immediately hit it off and after much persuading on his part they finally begun dating. That was three years ago, now they were renting a 2 bed apartment together in Manhattan and Morgan had recently accepted his proposal, again after much persuading.
Morgan had found it strange, she had always assumed that eventually she and Hunter would get back together and it would be him she would marry. But they each needed to find happiness in what they felt destined to do and if that meant that they couldn't be together, that was their burden to bear.
Only the original Kithic members knew about her past with Hunter and after their relationship had ended no one ever mentioned him again, maybe they were just trying to make life easier for her to get over him. Even Raven seemed to soften towards Morgan afterwards.
"I know I'm just looking for my keys!" Morgan cried, running out into the living room to see Harvey holding them up for her to see
"Oh okay" Morgan smiled
Harvey laughed "Come on, lets get going," he took her hand in his and lead her out the door.
Harvey was a beautiful man, he had long dark hair with soft blue eyes, he was taller than Morgan but not as tall as Hunter, Harvey stood about 5"9, he was very muscular and toned so she always felt protected and loved in his embrace, but still he was no Hunter.
Morgan always felt guilty for mentally comparing Hunter to Harvey, Harvey is a good man and a good witch who loved Morgan dearly and she indeed loved him in return but he will never be able to touch her in that same way Hunter did. The way that made every nerve tingle and her heart beat faster every time he was around.
As they walked the 6 blocks to Jenna's apartment they engaged in small talk
"So I hear the New Charter are looking for witches to join their teaching program" Harvey said. Morgan shuddered at the name of the New Charter, every time she heard it, she just thinks of the founder.
"Oh," was all Morgan could say
"They're opening 3 more schools across the world for Wiccan's just like that one in Scotland, including one right here in New York. I was thinking of signing up" Morgan remained silent while Harvey kept talking, "I know I wanted to become a Doctor but maybe I'm meant to teach healing I think I'd love that,"
Morgan gave Harvey a supportive smile, "I think you would too,"
"I tell you something though," Harvey continued, "That Hunter Niall is a genius…" Morgan's breath caught in her throat, "… I mean he set up the Charter single handed and completely fazed out the ways of the Old council which were definitely living in the past and needed to be updated,"
"Yeah…" Morgan agreed half heartedly, "That Hunter is really something"
"I think we should contact him, I bet he's heard so much about you Morgan that he'd definitely want to meet with you, maybe we could both work for him," Harvey rambled on getting excited
"Maybe… oh look here we are, Jenna's house" Morgan said quickly changing the subject
Inside everyone was already there talking amongst themselves drinking warm cider.
"Hey everyone, sorry we're a little late," Morgan said as they all became aware of her presence, "If you'd like to make a circle, we can all get started" After a moment everyone was inside a circle, Morgan was stood between Bree and Harvey.
"Since it's our first circle of January, I thought we could think about any regrets we may have, we need to clear away all of our negative feelings and push towards a positive year…" Morgan felt Bree give her hand a gentle squeeze and felt feelings of warmth and comfort hit her from the Original Kithic members, even Raven. "So first of all lets raise the energy and let it flow through us, going round the circle banish your regrets, not out loud, but keep them to yourself, replace them with happy memories and the knowledge your learned from it," Something that occasionally happened to Morgan when power was high and the circle was emotional she could pick up on the feelings and thoughts of others in her group, she normally ignored it as it was an invasion of privacy, but sometimes it was too strong to block it out. Morgan remembered the first time she did it, it was unintentional, she had picked up on Hunter's feelings for his father, who was still lost at the time, she remembered how angry he was with her. She knew it was wrong but sometimes things just screamed out at her, sometimes things she wishes she never heard.
People's regrets was a totally personal thing and for some were extremely emotional and hurtful. Morgan felt Matt's regret at cheating on Jenna it was obvious he was still in love with her after all these years. She picked up on Raven's regret for constantly cheating on Sky, Morgan felt the pang of loss for Sky and often picked up how much Raven missed her. She concentrated harder on her own regrets, well Morgan had only one regret and it will continue to haunt her for the rest of her life, but hopefully this circle will help her feel better. I regret breaking up with Hunter
After the circle everyone indulged in the snacks that Jenna had laid out and everyone had moved into small groups and chatted among themselves. Harvey had gone over to Seamus, Lucas, Matt and Ethan. So Morgan floated over to Bree who was talking with Robbie, Sharon, Jenna and Raven. "How much longer now, Sharon? You look about ready to pop!" Morgan overheard Bree asking
"About 2 months I can't believe how big I am" Sharon answered, "Hey Morgan great circle tonight," she said as she saw their leader approaching
"Thanks Sharon," Morgan replied
"What's going on with you?" Bree asked
"Nothing much," Morgan said
"No seriously, M, you're on a wicked downer tonight" Raven said "Something's up we can all sense it"
Morgan was so proud of her coven, it was made up of mostly non witches but Kithic had been together a long time and the older members were slowly sensing emotions of others, being able to tell who's calling on the phone before it rings, just the small stuff that Morgan could do from the start, and it was great to see how their strength in Wicca was developing
"First of all you come in looking like you've seen a ghost and then you do a circle about regrets, he's been playing on your mind again hasn't he?" Bree stated
Morgan nodded, "Harvey was talking about him on our way here, just came right out and said we should contact him so he and I could meet because Hunter would be interested to meet me"
"Ouch," Robbie said sympathetically and rubbed a hand on her shoulder for comfort
"I mean it's not as if he's to know, we haven't told anyone outside the original members about him but it was like I'd been slapped in the face," Morgan admitted
"Harvey's a great guy I don't think he has a bad bone in his body there's no way he would have said it to hurt you if he knew" Jenna said
"I know" Morgan replied, "He has a heart of gold and I love him dearly it's just…"
"He's not him," Bree finished for her
