Salem, Massachusetts, 1879.
A man is let into in a jail cell where a blonde woman waits.
"Matthew?" she says.
"Hello Melinda" Matthew replies.
"Why? Why did you betray me?" she asks.
"You got what you deserved" Matthew says.
"So, you never loved me? All the passion, all the heat?" Melinda cries.
"I had to make you trust me. It was the only way to share your powers" he says.
"And so now you have them. So why would you turn me in? You know I'll burn." Melinda's voice is panicked.
"I had to keep my secret", he replies simply.
"Well you can keep your trinkets too" with this, she tears off the locket she is wearing and throws it at him.
He opens the locket. "I'll find another witch to give it to," he says matter of factly.
"Maybe not" she laughs.
He pulls out a red piece of paper tucked into the locket, and it bursts into flames. "What magic is this?" Matthew demands.
"I'm taking back the powers you stole from me." Melinda declares. She begins to chant, "Outside of time, outside of gain, know only sorrow, know only pain."
With this, Matthew is covered in a supernatural gale and pulled into the locket, which snaps shut and lays in the dust of the prison cell, as Melinda smiles.
