The Magical world is in danger of extinction. As a way of battling this problem, the government has issued a mandate forcing every pure blood witch and wizard who are of the appropriate age and able to bear children, to marry another who is of pure blood. Clarissa, a young witch, just turned eighteen and has received her notification, along with a list of the wizards who have petitioned for her hand.
Also tucked away within the notice is a charm. It will bring the one she is most likely to be able to find happiness with to her. Once she begins, the charm and its effects cannot be stopped. Will she use the charm, even if it will lead her into the arms of someone she doesn't want to marry?
Will Clarissa use a magic charm and find happiness, even if it means marrying someone she doesn't want to marry? The Chosen Mate, a short story by Shiloh Darke. Available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, other fine eBook vendors and Gypsy Shadow Publishing at:
