The chosen one
Mortal realm- Miami
Magic realm- W.I.T.S Academy- formerly
Hex- enchanted magic boo
Emma has been in the series since the first book and was a main character for the longest time. She then turned into a recurring character. Emma started off as a pregnant fifteen-year-old teenager and when the series ended she was very deep into her adult years.Background
At just a few days old, Emma came into her powers and at the same time became the chosen one. Childhood wasn't easy for her as she was attacked on a regular basis and had almost not been allowed to attend school. She hung out with her cousins and her foster sister Andi and in third grade befriended Katie. When she had been just ten her mother was killed by an evil witch named Erica during an attack in their home. Maria's death had been a sacrifice she made to save her daughter. Two months later Emma was forced by the council to attend W.I.T.S Academy alongside Maddie and Jax. She graduated from the Academy with Maddie at the age of fourteen and right after started fulfilling her chosen one duties. While in ninth grade, Emma used her magic to bring a zombie out of a video game into real life and allowed her best friend to keep him and in order to do so had to keep him a secret from her bosses- the council.
Every witch pregnancy"I wouldn't go back, in life, you have to move forward no matter what." Emma- friends
Emma was kind and supportive, she always wanted to do the right thing. She was also extremely loyal. However, she was also very stressed out and emotional throughout her pregnancy.
Being a daughter
Emma didn't tell her father that she was going to take a pregnancy test nor did she tell him she even needed to take one. When Emma found out she was pregnant she didn't want to tell her father. She knew he would be very angry with her. The pregnancy was destroying their relationship as he was ignoring her.
Dealing with her teenage pregnancy
Due to morning sickness and splitting headaches- Emma believed there was a chance she was pregnant. On August seventeenth, 2005, Emma decided to take a pregnancy test along with her two cousins in Lily's office. Emma was the second of the girls to learn she was pregnant. Emma had a million thoughts jumping in her head but she couldn't make sense of them, she couldn't even speak. After finding out she was pregnant, Emma didn't tell her father or her boyfriend and acted casual. Though she felt very awkward when around them and hated keeping the secret from them. It was harder keeping the secret from Jax than it was keeping it from her father. The first person Emma told was her best friend Andi who she had known since at least the age of three, it was after Andi had texted her in class about being pregnant with a zombie's child. During lunch that day Emma revealed to Andi that she had never wanted kids.
Just the next day Emma started feeling like she wasn't the same “Emma” anymore. When she arrived at school, Emma decided to pay Lily a quick visit before class started to avoid her boyfriend. Emma and Lily spoke very often about the pregnancy as Lily was one of the few adults helping Emma through it. Emma had a pretty hard time dealing with her pregnancy during the first trimester. She broke down in tears when talking to Katie in a school bathroom in chapter one. Her father's reaction to her pregnancy put her in tears as well. Her father was the main cause of her stress throughout the pregnancy. At the end of chapter one, she was also dumped by her boyfriend which didn't help. However, Lily did offer to take her in if she wanted to keep the baby which was the first thing that gave Emma a peace of mind during her pregnancy.
In chapter two things got more stressful when Emma was banned from her chosen one duties while pregnant, she had hoped to have one normal aspect of her life to hold onto. Her father was also still angry with her and even refused to drive her to and from school- which lead to her starting to walk with her cousins. Emma finally got a supportive adult family member when her aunt Ursula scolded Francisco for how he was treating her and told her to call if she ever needed her. Her aunt's support did help Emma keep her spirits up.
When Andi asked Emma- in chapter two- how she thought her deceased mom would have reacted to the pregnancy, Emma said she liked to believe her mom would have been disappointed but would have supported her. Often times- Emma turned to her mother for advice. In chapter five Emma found out she was right. Marah came to visit her as a spirit on Christmas and told her she was proud of her and believed she could be a great mother. This helped Emma very much in making her choice.
At the start of chapter three, it didn't look like things were going to get better between Emma and Jax, nor were things getting better between Emma and her father. Emma told Andi she was keeping her baby and her plan was to get a job and bring the baby to school with her. She started telling people- like her father and Lily- that she was keeping the baby making it sound like that was her final decision- and it was the only decision she had considered and went with. October seemed to be a good month for Emma. In chapter three Jax came back into the picture. However, it wasn't until chapter four when they got back together. Chapter four started off good for Emma- despite her mood swings. She started attending ultrasounds and doctor appointments with Jax- though she did start heavily worrying about her chosen one life putting her child in harm's way.
December- chapter five- was another great month for Emma for the most part. First, she started baby-shopping with her cousin Maddie. She also made plans to move in with Jax and his parents a week before the baby was due. Towards the end of the chapter she had a good moment with her father on Christmas, and later that day was visited by her mother and had all of her questions answered. In chapter six- January- Emma found out she was having a daughter. Later in the chapter she and Jax had a gender reveal party with their family and friends.
In chapter seven Emma picked her daughter's name. She also got some experience of motherhood by helping Jax look after a baby from the foster care system while also having to do the housework at Lily's house for an entire day. When Emma found out her daughter was going to be the chosen one- Emma wasn't happy. She didn't want Jessie to have the same childhood she had experienced, and she agreed with Jax Jessie would be treated like any child. Also in chapter seven- Emma had her breaking point as she stressed over various things. In chapter nine Emma had her sixteenth birthday and moved in with Jax.
Emma's sex life
In chapter five Emma resumed her sex life with Jax after his Christmas party. However, throughout the rest of her pregnancy, she wasn't mentioned to be having sex with him.
Through most of her pregnancy, Emma only hung out with Andi- who had been her best friend since the age of three. In her first trimester, Emma had spent some time with her cousin and had encountered little moments with Katie that hinted there was still pieces of their childhood friendship left. In chapter seven Emma started bonding with Maddie who surprised her by showing up at her house. She then befriended Katie and Gigi. After that, she often hung out with her group of pregnant friends and was very happy having them in her life.
The Phillip case
In chapter four Emma was informed by Andi that Andi's zombie lover Phillip- who Emma had brought to life with magic the year before- was being haunted down by the council. Emma helped Andi hide him in a cabin in the woods and stayed with him while Andi had swim practice later that day. Emma later called Andi when the council arrived at her house and tried stopping them from taking Phillip using her chosen one status which didn't work, so she tel-transported them away. Later on Emma was informed by the council that Phillip had been captured- and she went with Lily and Maddie to the cabin looking for Andi who was found unconscious. Later in the chapter Emma held a trial for Phillip but lost his case, she did, however, save Andi and Phillips' unborn son from taking as well by promising she would ensure the child was harmless and fitted in with the mortal world. In chapter four Emma tried rescuing Phillip with a locator spell however it didn't work. In a later chapter, she broke into the council but was caught.
The birth of Jessica Marah Novoa
Emma welcome her daughter on April 13th, 2006- Chapter nine. The birth had made her exhausted and she was sleeping through most of the visits from family and friends. She made her daughter a promise when having a moment alone with her. She promised that if she had to sacrifice herself for her and die she would- just like her mother had for her. At the very end of the chapter, she introduced Jessie to her friends and the babies of her friends.
Every witch student: Welcome to the Academy
"Stay by this phone until she has her powers back, do not move until then!" Emma- Jax
Emma tended to worry a lot about her daughter and exaggerate when something bad happened to her. Other than that she was pretty much the same Emma as she had been in high school. Though less stressed and happier. She also more mature as she was ten years older.
During the ten years between the first and second book, Emma was said to have been away from home a lot due to her chosen one life. Yet she never missed out on the big events in her daughter's life. Emma also got married at the age of twenty to her high school boyfriend.
Emma had been on the fence about allowing Jessie to attend the Academy but had been convinced. When she dropped her off she was highly nervous about leaving her there. She was also quite emotional when it came time to say farewell. Emma also entrusted her daughter with her magic book knowing she was responsible enough to look after him.
In chapter two Emma became very worried when she found out Jessie's powers had been stolen. She literally threw a phone at her husband and told him not to move until he heard their daughter had gotten her magic back. At the end of the chapter, she went to visit her daughter and didn't find what she had done funny at all. Many times through the book Emma tried to discourage Jessie from acting like her father.
In chapter four Emma was not happy when she found out Jessie had failed her first magic test. She allowed Jessie to drop out of the academy and went to pick her up. She later made Jessie give Andi a chance to apologize after Jessie refused to talk with her when Andi showed up at the mansion. She then allowed Andi to return to the academy with Jessie.
In chapter seven Emma was informed about the upcoming full moon by Ava. She warned all of her friends and decided it was best to bring Jessie home until the full moon had passed. Emma was turned evil by the full moon and teamed up with Jax and Liana and possibly Maddie to take over the world. She never did succeed in her plan as she required another very powerful witch or wizard. Once the full moon passed, Emma was back to normal.
In chapter nine Emma attended Ursula's Christmas Eve party. That night Emma talked to her mother like she did every year on Christmas. She talked about Jessie and was joined by Jessie who wanted to talk to Marah too. In chapter eleven Emma participated in the big family day at the Academy.
Emma had been helping Andi find and rescue Phillip since his capture. Towards the end of the second book, Emma had been attending Ethan's therapy sessions with Lily. She helped solve the case when she figured out Phillip was now Luke Archer. In the last chapter, she went to the academy to tell Andi what had happened to Phillip, but it wasn't until Andi attended a meeting with Lily did Emma state she believed Phillip was Luke.
Every witch student: Remember me
“Take my powers and keep them if you want! I will never betray Andi and her family.” Emma- the council
In chapter three, Emma agreed with her cousin Maddie that Luke remembering his zombie life wasn't permanent. She later agreed with her daughter Jessie that the council was going to strike again. In the next chapter, Emma received a letter from her daughter informing her that she had been right about Luke's memory not being permanently returned.
In chapter six, Emma had decided to pay a visit to her daughter at the Academy. Jessie informed her of the plan she had come up with to restore Luke's memory permanent. Emma told her she was a genius. She gathered with the others in the small gym and held Luke's hands. By doing so, Luke regained a memory of them from when he had Phillip- Emma had been fifteen and she had been teaching him different objects so he could identify them in his daily life and this had also been helping him learn how to speak. Emma was then in tears- sobbing like a baby- when Luke permanently remembered and emotionally reunited with his family.
In chapter seven, Emma had arranged for Andi and Luke along with their son Ethan to return to the mortal realm for a month so they could properly begin to bond as a family. However, later that chapter she came to the Academy not to pick them up but to tell them they could no longer come. She also informed them of the thing they had feared would come true. The council knew that Luke remembered that he was Phillip. She also said that she didn't know how the council had found out.
During Andi's stay
In chapter five, Andi called Emma on the phone and asked her to open a portal so she could return home for a couple of days. Emma agreed to as long as Andi stayed with her and Jax in the mansion because she was worried that Andi wouldn't be safe without the protection of a full witch or wizard and Andi wasn't in the best state of mind. Emma was happy to have Andi come and stay with her and her husband Jax who was also happy to see Andi.
During the first day, Emma was visited by her aunt Ursula who had stopped by simply because it had been a while since they had last seen each other. Due to Ursula's advice to Andi, Emma cast a spell on Andi to allow her to relive her memories of Phillip and Ethan. Later that day she and Andi had gone over to Maddie and Diego's house for supper. The next morning, Emma told Andi it was too soon to return to the Academy but Andi insisted on going back, so Emma opened a portal for her listening to her heart instead of her head.
That afternoon Emma sent Jax to pick Andi up the mansion while she was having a visit with Ava. (Andi had realized Emma was right and had decided to come back for a few days.) When Jax arrived at Ava's house with Andi, Emma learned that Andi had lost her entire memory from falling through the portal and hitting her head on a coffee table. Ava told Emma that it was more likely that Andi had done it on purpose wanting to be able to forget all the bad stuff. Emma allowed Ava to restore Andi's memory to her using a memory potion. Two days later, Emma opened another portal to send Andi back to Academy knowing she was now ready to return.
Being stripped of her magic
In chapter nine- on her birthday- Emma was summoned by the council for a meeting. They requested that she turn Andi and Luke over to them and threatened to strip her of her magic if she refused. Emma did refuse and as punishment was stripped of her chosen one magic and her regular witch strength magic. (However, it was said that if Emma regained her chosen one magic- even without council permission- she would continue to carry on being the chosen one.) Emma was pretty hurt but didn't regret anything.
Every witch teen: Secrets, Crushes, Struggles
“I gotta get miss igloo investigation unit home.” Emma- Diego talking about Jessie
Emma was still pretty much the same Emma. She still had the same values and beliefs. Emma did seem to spend a whole lot more time with her family. She was home a lot because she was training her daughter. Emma often grew frustrated with Jessie during her training sessions and once snapped at her.
In the second chapter, Emma started Jessie's chosen one training. She had Jessie chase Diego around the yard testing her on her take-downs. Emma did seem impressed by how well Jessie had done on her first try. She also gave her some suggestions on what else she could have done.
In the eighth chapter, Emma knew her daughter wanted some real practice. She decided to allow Jessie to help her with the takedown of a, particularly challenging Kanay-Witch case. When Jessie had accidentally used a regular bracelet instead of the power-blocking one and the Kanay got away, Emma snapped at Jessie causing her to cry and run off. She later apologized to her daughter and shared a story with her about a similar mistake she had made when she had been a teenager.
Emma was with her friends in the second chapter when her cousin Maddie revealed she was thinking of adopting a baby. Emma informed that her husband also wanted another child, and though she couldn't see herself raising another, she could see Maddie raising a third child. Later in the chapter, she was present at a family supper with her father, aunt Ursula, cousin Maddie, and Maddie's husband and children. She sat awkwardly through an intense argument between Ursula and Maddie about Maddie adopting another baby. It was more awkward when Ursula later called Maddie “a bad mother,” because Emma had agreed with Maddie that she should adopt another baby.
Also in the second chapter, Jax desired to have another child with Emma who disagreed. Emma told him the life she lived- the chosen one life- wasn't a safe one for children and that back when Jessie had been a baby she had been living with three people who helped protect her. She then suggested to him that he try babysitting. Later in the chapter, Emma revealed to Jax that the real reason she didn't want to have a baby was because she didn't feel up to raising another child from the start since their current daughter was now a teenager, she told Jax that if they had talked about adding to the family when Jessie had been little she would have agreed to it.
In the third chapter, Emma went to visit her first cousin twice removed Hope at the hospital on the day she was born. In the fifth chapter, Emma decided to give her cousin Sophie magic to make her search for Alex easier. This way Sophie would be able to teleport and could locate her father with magic on her own instead of having to ask her sister or cousin.
In the tenth chapter, Emma was furious with her husband after he kidnapped the toddler of their best friend just to give Jessie some real chosen one practice. Even though Andi wasn't mad and had forgiven him, Emma was still pretty heated up over it later that day during supper. Later in the chapter, Emma teamed up with Kira to bring her mother back in spirit form as a surprise visit for her father. Emma spent some time with her mother as well.
In the fourteenth chapter, Emma celebrated her daughter's birthday, and in the following chapter, she had celebrated her cousin Sophie's birthday.
Chosen one life
On the morning of Halloween- in the fifth chapter- Emma was called by Sara during an attack in her home. When arrived at the scene of the crime, it had been too late to save Sara's adoptive parents but she recused Sara and dealt with the murdering witch. She brought Sara to the department of magical children in magical services and told her social worker- Mia- to call Sara's biological mother- probably knowing Sophie would want custody back.
In the tenth chapter, Emma recruited Diego to help her rescue Jessie from an igloo. Emma had Diego rescue Jessie while she dealt with the Kanay who had been causing trouble and who had trapped Jessie inside the igloo. Emma afterwards agreed to let Diego be her sidekick and brought Jessie home.
In the seventh chapter, Emma was a maid of honor in Andi and Luke's wedding. She also celebrated Christmas Eve with her family and friends. In the ninth chapter, Emma and her father read some entries from Emma's late mother's journals that were mostly about Emma. Emma was in tears and felt she now had a deeper connection with her deceased mother.
At the start of the eleventh chapter, Emma took Jessie and Andi to the graveyard to visit her mother's grave on what would have been her mother's birthday. In the thirteenth chapter, Emma celebrated her birthday and her cousins birthday, during which she made a bet with her cousin about how long their parents would be able to live together. She later on in the chapter had a meeting with her guardian Lily which turned out to be more of a social visit since all they talked about what old memories.
Emma and Francisco
"Just because I've changed paths doesn't mean I'm lost." Emma to Francisco
Francisco and Emma did not have a good relationship throughout the first book of the series. Everything was fine until Francisco found out Emma was fifteen and pregnant. He was very harsh on her and didn't listen to what she was saying. He grounded her and gave her until the end of her pregnancy to decide what to do about the baby if she kept it she would have to move out. Francisco and Emma barely spoke throughout the book and often avoided each other. Francisco stopped driving Emma to and from school. He even sent her to school once with a bad headache and didn't seem to care she wasn't feeling well. On Christmas he put aside his anger to watch home movies with Emma and did tell her would love her no matter what. In this book that was the only time where he wasn't angry with her, except for maybe on her birthday when he showed up at her party. When Emma had given birth, Francisco did go to meet the baby and kissed Emma before he left as she was sleeping.
In the second book, Francisco and his daughter Emma did have a better relationship. It was mentioned he was know involved in her life. Though, during the full moon, Emma froze her dad to keep him out of the way when she was evil. It wasn't mentioned how he reacted to that when Emma unfroze him.
In the third book, their relationship hadn't changed all that much. In chapter two, Emma went to visit her father at the high school and Francisco joked that he had been wondering if she had forgotten about him. This made it clear that it had been a while since they had last seen each other.
In the sixth book, Francisco was more involved in his daughter's life. In the first chapter- at the graduation party- he heard Emma say she was worried her daughter was too focused on being great. He pointed out that Emma had been worried too at Jessie's age and that she should tell Jessie that.
Emma and Maria
“You can't sell that house, that was mom's house!” Emma- Francisco
It was known Emma had been very close to her mother Maria before her death. In fact, the reason Maria died was that she sacrificed herself in order to give her daughter a chance to escape an evil witch. Emma had not taken the loss well and throughout the first book in the series, it seemed as though she was still pained by the loss even though it had been five years. Emma often thought of her mother and prayed to her when she needed advice. On Christmas night she broke down in tears when her mother came to visit her in spirit form. Maria told Emma she was proud of her and believed she could be a good mother. She also answered Emma's biggest question of does she regret saving her life. Maria stated she didn't regret it because a mother would do anything to protect their child. Then after giving Emma some advice on how to live her life she gave her a final hug and disappeared into the white light. To honor her mother Emma named her daughter's middle name after her.
In the sixth book, Emma grew closer to her deceased mother.
Emma and Jake
“If I'm old than what are you...a dinosaur?
Jake was always nice and supportive towards Emma during her teenage pregnancy. Jake, along with his wife and son, invited Emma to move in with them so she and Jax could raise their baby together. In the third book, it didn't look as though Emma had much contact with Liana and Jake.
In the sixth book, Emma still had a good relationship with her father-in-law.
Emma and Liana
"Answers Liana! Now!" Emma- Liana
Liana was always nice and supportive towards Emma during her teenage pregnancy. She and Emma did talk a few times and they were general conversations. Liana, along with her husband and son, invited Emma to move in with them so she and Jax could raise their baby together. In the third book, it didn't look as though Emma had much contact with Liana and Jake.
In the sixth book, Emma wanted nothing to do with Liana.
Emma and Ava
“Honestly I'm not sure. She's too worried about being great and I'm scared that will get in the way.” Emma- Ava about Jessie
In the first book, it was mentioned that Ava and Emma had a somewhat friendship between them and that Ava had in the past helped Emma with her chosen one's cases. In the second book, it was known Ava still helped Emma out with chosen one stuff. She was the one who warned Emma about the upcoming full moon.
In the fifth chapter of the third book, it seemed as though Ava and Emma were still friends. Emma had gone to visit Ava when Andi had purposely lost her memory. Emma didn't know what to do and turned to Ava who solved it by giving Andi a memory potion to restore her memory.
In the sixth book, Ava and Emma were still on good terms. They mostly communicated when present at parties together.
Emma and Lily
“I would have loved being your daughter.” Emma- Lily
Emma is very fond of her guardian Lily who is also very fond of her. They are very close and see each other as friends, though Lily doesn't let the friendship or anything else get in the way of being Emma's guardian. It is clear Emma trusts Lily even with personal things, it was Lily who confirmed Emma's teenage pregnancy. Lily even offered to take Emma in if she chose to keep her baby. Lily also went to the hospital to meet Emma's daughter when she was born and had also taken part in Jessie's gender reveal.
In the last chapter of the third book, Lily was present at Emma's meeting with the council. Though Lily was on Emma's side, she did warn Emma to keep her mouth shut and not anger the council as they were already pretty fed up with her. Emma didn't exactly listen to Lily's advice.
In the sixth book, Emma and Lily still had a strong relationship though didn't see each other often.
Emma and Jax
“No way, Really? I thought you just randomly invited the toddler of our friends to come over for a dance session.” Emma- Jax
Emma and Jax had originally met at W.I.T.S academy at age ten during their first year of magic education and training. However since Jax was expelled three months later, the two forgot about each other. Then they reunited in ninth grade when they were assigned to complete a project together. In grade ten Emma didn't tell him about her pregnancy right away and it killed her to keep it a secret. When she finally did tell him he decided to dump her because he wasn't ready to be a father.
Emma was upset and cried when being comforted by Lily later that day. When Jax asked for a second chance two months later Emma was hesitant as she didn't believe he was going to stay anyways. However, she did give him a chance and they ended up getting back together when Emma was four months pregnant. Since that point, everything in their relationship was good and stable. They were able to make agreements when it came to their unborn daughter. At the end of the pregnancy, Jax had Emma move in with him and his family and surprised her by setting up their daughter's nursery making it resemble Emma's childhood bedroom she had just moved out of to move in with him. It wasn't mentioned if Jax had been in the delivery room when Jessie was born, however, he was at the hospital with her when people started to visit.
In the second book, Emma and Jax were married. Emma seemed to be the boss of the relationship though wasn't too over the top. She also rolled her eyes at his smart ass comments and gave him looks when he encouraged Jessie to pull pranks. At one point early in the second book, Emma did throw a phone at Jax when freaking out about their daughter's magic being stolen and strictly told him not to move until the Academy called with the news.
Nothing really changed in the third book. Emma still seemed to keep Jax in line for the most part and shot him looks when he said something she didn't agree with. When Emma had given up her magic, Jax was the first person she went to and he comforted her with a hug.
In the sixth book, Emma and Jax had the same relationship. They got along for the most part but still had their fights and arguments every now and then. In the second chapter, Jax wanted to have another baby but Emma didn't. This caused them to fight and argue. Later on in the chapter, Emma and Jax talked again and came to the agreement that Jessie would be their only child.
Emma and Maddie
"It was killing me not being able to tell you." Emma- Maddie
It had been mentioned that Emma and her cousin Maddie had been very close friends in elementary school. However, in ninth grade and the beginning of tenth grade, they weren't close anymore and didn't hang out. At the beginning of tenth grade, they took pregnancy tests together for support along with Sophie, and Maddie was happy for Emma when her test came out positive. Over the next few months, they hung out every now and then for lunch and sleepovers with the other pregnant teenage girls and seemed to be becoming close again. In December they went baby shopping together and in January congratulated each other when they both learned they were having daughters.
It was in February when Maddie randomly surprised Emma at her house to hang out. They talked about what was going on in their lives then looked for baby names, Emma picked one but Maddie didn't. The cousins then talked about why they weren't close anymore. Maddie stated they basically just ended up picking different friends and drifted apart. They came up with the idea to get together with their pregnant friends and Gigi and attempt to form one big group of friends to get their closeness back and have more friends. They did so and it worked out great. After that, they were back to being close friends.
In the second book, Emma and Maddie were still very close even though it had been ten years. In chapter ten, Maddie was a little upset at Emma when found out that Emma had known for months that Melanie had been found and was living in a foster home in Miami. Emma said that it had killed her not being able to tell her and explained why she hadn't said anything. Maddie accepted her reasons and forgave her easily.
In the third book, it was clear that Emma and Maddie had a good relationship and were still close. They ate together twice in one chapter and often talked. In chapter seven, Maddie was with Emma when it became known that it wasn't sage for Andi and Andi's family to return home.
In the sixth book, these two were still very close and hung out often. In the second chapter, Emma agreed with Maddie that she should adopt a baby because she could see her raising another child.
Emma and Andi
“I know you would have if you could have. That's why I love you.” Emma- Andi
It was mentioned Emma and Andi had become friends at the age of three after Andi started living with her as a foster child of Emma's parents. It wasn't mentioned if they had met before then though most likely had since Andi's parents had been friends with Emma's parents. The girls were separated at age ten when Emma went off to the magic academy and Andi went to live with her aunt, however, they reunited in the summer before starting high school and were best friends again instantly.
In Grade ten Emma and Andi supported each other throughout their teenage pregnancies. When Phillip was taken away by the council, Emma saved Andi's unborn son from taken as well. She then proved her loyalty by promising to help Andi get Phillip back and went against the council, who were technically her boss as the chosen one, to do so. Throughout the remainder of their pregnancies, they remained supportive of each other and grew even closer together. It was Emma who Andi talked to about taking a break from looking for Phillip to focus on her son, to which Emma agreed.
In the second book, Emma took a major role in helping Andi learn what happened to Phillip. Though for the most part, they were still best friends, there was a day when they weren't. When Andi neglected Jessie's training causing her to final her first magic test, Emma was not happy since Jessie is her daughter. Emma snapped at Andi and even told her she had broken her heart. However, they patched up their friendship really fast after Andi made up with Jessie.
Emma spent most of the third book attempting to help Andi restore Luke's memory. She was present when it finally happened and Andi couldn't stop thanking her for everything she had done. It had always been clear that they were very close friends and it was proven just how close they were in the last chapter. Emma gave up her magic and chosen one status because she refused to hand Andi and Luke over to the council. Emma then told Andi what had happened to warn her that the council might go after the kids. Andi told Emma she would have never asked nor expected Emma to give up her magic, and Emma replied that they were family.
In the sixth book, these two were still very close and hung out often.
Emma and Katie
“I can already see her heart breaking.” Emma- Katie
In third grade when Katie was a new student, Emma had been the first to befriend her. They were good friends until Emma headed off to the academy. They lost touch and drifted apart. However in grade ten when Emma found Katie crying in the bathroom she offered to talk, Katie who still trusted Emma, opened up about her rape and pregnancy, and Emma revealed her pregnancy. The girls had an emotional supportive conversation then parted ways and headed back to class. Throughout most of their pregnancies, they got together from time to time when Emma or Maddie arranged lunches and sleepovers for all the pregnant teenage girls. It was only in February when they were seven months pregnant when Emma and Katie became actual friends again. It happened during Emma and Maddie's attempts to have their friends befriend each other and Gigi to form one big group of friends, and Katie was Maddie's friend so she had been invited.
In the second book, Emma went to Katie when worried about Jessie after Jessie's magic had been stolen. Katie made her realize that she needed to step back a little and let Jessie start growing up. In the third book, they were still close it seemed like. However, after chapter seven, Emma never thought about Katie nor tried to contact her, it was like Katie didn't even exist and never had.
In the sixth book, these two were still very close and hung out often. In the third chapter, Emma celebrated Katie's 30th birthday with her and their friends.
