ROMANCE


When Claire's grandma passes away, she leaves behind a spell book that promises magical help should Claire ever need it. Years later, Claire meets Colton in the bookstore where she works and instantly falls for him but can't quite seem to tell if he reciprocates the feeling. She calls upon the book and her grandma's spirit to open his heart towards her. The following day she sees him again at the bookstore and thinks her chance has come, only this time he's there with another girl.



Claire is heartbroken. However her heartbreak turns to horror when, a few days later, he reappears at the bookstore alone and asks her out to lunch. She stumbles over an excuse and retreats to the back room. That night she consults her grandmother's spirit asking if there's a way to reverse the spell she cast, full of guilt at having turned his heart towards her when he already had a girlfriend.
