It's okay. I'm already dead. I was a witch, just like you. And we believe in the natural order of things. I shouldn't be here. I love that I had this, but it's a lie. And now I need you to help me make it right. The longer I'm here, the more I remember where I came from. I used to watch you. I used to watch all of you. Like in a dream where everything is warm and happy. I think I was at peace. So that's where I'll be. Waiting for you.
Josette to Alaric, Josie, and Lizzie
