I had seen Practical Magic on DVD. I loved that movie. It is the ultimate chick flick. I remembered a scene out of it when Sally is performing the Amas Veritas, true love spell. I thought I would do it. As I walked through my mom's garden picking different petals off of flowers, I asked for these qualities.
1. He must have a great sense of humor.
2. He must be a Renaissance man, able to do anything he sets his mind to.
3. He must be of good standing in his community.
4. He must possess an open mind and not judge harshly.
5. He will have green eyes
7. Be of tall stature
8. Be gentle and kind
9. Love animals
10. Be able to love me for me and nothing else
Then a strong wind came up as they always do in Northeast El Paso and I threw the flower petals in the wind.
I had been talking to David on line in a Pogo.com room with other friends. I never saw him face to face. He was always going off to other rooms to play with his other friends. One night when we were online we started talking about ourselves,besides the usual basketball and topics of the day. I learned from a mutual friend of ours that David secretly wanted to meet me. She told me that she and David would meet to have lunch on Sundays in Austin. All he ever talked about was Kitten this(my nickname), Kitten that. She said that if I didn't meet him soon he might just bust a gut or something. That he was crazy about me. All I could think of was how can anyone be crazy about someone they never met yet. I told her I couldn't meet him because he was married. Right there she started laughing. He was divorced. She said I had to really talk to him that he was the nicest guy she ever met.
David and I started talking more and more every night. He said he had to meet me and asked what I was doing that weekend. I told him I was working and had the weekend off. All he said was great. Then that Thursday night he said he was going to be in El Paso to see me. I was dumbfounded. and nervous as hell.
I met David face to face on a Friday night June 7th of 2002 after work and never left him until Monday morning June 10th. It was love at first site. He was everything I had asked for in my Spell. I was totally amazed. He proposed to me that Sunday night before he left to go back to his hometown here in Texas. He returned and kidnapped me 2 weeks later and we were married in September. All because of a love spell.
Sometimes I wondered in the past 8 years with David that it was the spell that made him come to me and not just chance. He said he didn't care if it was the love spell or not. He said he has never been disappointed in me yet. When we go places we still hold hands and even kiss in public. I know it sounds all mushy but it's the honest truth. We still act as if we just got married.
He loves to go shopping with me. In fact we go everywhere together. We have one night a week that we call our date night. That night is usually dinner out and or a movie. He has a very open mind. He isn't religious but he doesn't mind the fact that he has a witch for a wife. He said he would never marry again after his last marriage ended in divorce. Then he met me. Things change. I often think back on that night in my mom's garden ... how that little spell got me all this happiness.
