Is that why people hate us so much, Aunt Frances?
Aunt Frances (V.O): They don't hate us, sweetheart.
We just make them a little nervous.
She was a witch.
Aunt Frances (V.O): But no, I didn't think it was either of those reasons. They feared her because she had a gift a power that has been passed on to you children. She had the gift of magic. And it was this very gift that saved her life. She was vanished to this very island. With her unborn child growing inside her belly. She waited for her lover to rescue her. But he never came. No one came. In a moment of despair, she cat a spell upon herself that she would never again feel the agony of love. But as her bitterness grew the spell turned into a curse. A curse on any man who dared love an Owens woman.
