Emma developed her ordinary witch magic and her chosen one strength magic when she was a newborn. Due to being the chosen one, Emma was attacked on a regular basis during her childhood by evil witches, wizards, and Kanays. She did attend Iridium elementary school like other children and grew up playing with her best friend Andi, friend Katie, and her cousins Maddie and Sophie.
Emma lost her mother during a home attack in July 2000 when she had been just ten-years-old. Maria had sacrificed her life to ensure her daughter escaped after a few final words of advice and instructions. Emma hadn't had much time to mourn the death of her mother since she was forced by the council to attend W.I.T.S Academy two months after the death for her magic training and education. She went with Maddie and at the Academy met Jax though he was expelled after just three months and they hadn't become friends.
In June 2004, Emma graduated from the Academy and over that summer took on her chosen one responsibilities. In August 2004, Emma started ninth grade at Iridium high school. She soon began dating Jax and hung out only with Jax and Andi- occasionally with Daniel Miller as well.
At some point in ninth grade, Emma used her magic to bring a virtual zombie out of a video game to save him from being blasted to pieces in the game by Jax who had lost control of his character. Emma allowed Andi to keep Phillip and took it upon herself to teach him how to live in the mortal world and helped keep him a secret from 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.
The loss of her mother
It was said that Emma had been very close to her mother Maria and there were many hints that proved that. Five years later, the loss of her mother still pained Emma. She sometimes hated seeing her reflection as it would remind her that her mother was gone and was missing out on what was going on in her life.
Emma's personal life
With her mother deceased, her father not speaking to her, and her broken relationship with her cousins and aunt, Emma felt lonely in the second chapter. In the fifth chapter, Emma was visited by her mom on the night of Christmas day and got all of her questions answered during their short visit.
In the fifth chapter, Emma was invited to live in the Novoa Mansion with her boyfriend and his parents and was overjoyed. It was decided she would move in with them a week or two before the baby's due date.
Emma's life as the chosen one
In the second chapter, Emma skipped class to avoid her father and went to see Lily who told her that she and the council had agreed that Emma should put aside her chosen one duties, besides attending council meetings, during her pregnancy to avoid Emma and the baby getting hurt. Emma was disappointed to have to let this part of her life temporarily go, but understood why she had too and didn't complain or argue.
In the fourth chapter, Emma was visited by the council late at night and called Andi over. Emma went unpunished for the crime of bringing Phillip the zombie to life. She tried using her chosen one status to order the council to leave Phillip and Phillip and Andi's unborn child alone, but the council just laughed in her face. Emma then teleported them out of her house not caring where they would end up and knowing they would be furious with her and that they would be back.
Later in the chapter, Emma requested a trial for Phillip after the council captured him. She lost his case but did manage to save Andi's unborn child from being taken away by promising to personally ensure the child would remain harmless and would fit in with the mortal world. By doing this, she had become responsible for his fate. After the trail, Emma tried finding Phillip using a location spell which failed. She kept trying different spells until her magic was too drained and Andi stopped her.
Emma's underage pregnancy
Emma and Jax had been sexually active for nine months when Emma had found out she was pregnant at fifteen. She had been on the pill and Jax had occasionally used condoms. In the first chapter, Emma had gone to the school nurse believing she could be pregnant because she had been getting splitting headaches and morning sickness daily over the past week. Before school, Emma acted casual around her father and forced herself to eat not wanting her dad to be suspicious that something was going on with her. Emma took a pregnancy test before the first class on her first day of tenth-grade and found out she was pregnant. Emma stood there frozen as her cousin screamed and hugged her. She had a million thoughts running through her mind but couldn't make sense of any of them.
Emma admitted to Andi that she had never even wanted kids and there was nothing good about her pregnancy. When her father found out about the pregnancy, he yelled at Emma and didn't care about what she had to say. He grounded her and he threatened to kick her out if she decided to keep her baby. He gave her until the end of her pregnancy to decide. She was later on dumped by Jax. These two things made Emma believe the universe wanted to have an abortion but she was actually wanting to keep her baby.
Emma hadn't had a period during her pregnancy where she had thought about her options. It seemed as though at first that she was going to give the baby up for adoption because she told Andi she didn't want children, but Emma had never actually given any thought to giving her baby up for adoption or having an abortion. Emma's first decision was to keep her baby and this was the only decision she went with. Though at times she questioned if she should keep her baby, she never actually mentioned nor said anything about thinking of adoption or abortion. The first time Emma said she wanted to keep her baby was when Lily asked her what she wanted to do, but Emma said she hadn't been sure. In the second chapter, Emma told her cousins, best friends, and the other two pregnant girls that she wanted to keep her baby but hadn't made that choice official. In the third chapter, Emma made it official that she was keeping her baby.
In the third chapter, Emma was suffering from cramps and migraines. In the fourth chapter, Emma's hormones were all over the place and it was mentioned that she didn't care what the gender of her child was. In the sixth chapter, Emma found out she was pregnant with a daughter through a traditional witch gender reveal prepared by Lily. She was happy to find out she was having a little girl. Emma hosted a gender reveal party with her family and friends on the weekend.
Lily had been Emma's guardian since Emma was a newborn, and over the years the two had become as close as mother and daughter. In the first chapter, Emma had her pregnancy confirmed by Lily and couldn't look her in the eyes because she was consumed with guilt and shame. To avoid Jax one morning, Emma went to see Lily at her office and confided in Lily about not being able to face her father or Jax. Lily had been the one who told Emma's dad about the pregnancy. She did apologize to Emma, but Emma told her she wasn't upset with her because she had been just trying to help and had no way of knowing how badly Francisco was going to react.
Lily asked Emma what she wanted to do about the baby. Emma replied she was thinking she wanted to keep the baby but would have nowhere to live if she did. Lily offered to take her and the baby in if Emma did decide to keep her baby and needed a place to stay. In the third chapter, Emma told Lily she was keeping her baby and got her support.
Throughout most of Emma's pregnancy, Francisco gave her the silent treatment and most of the time they did talk, it turned into a fight. This started in the second chapter when Francisco decided to stop driving Emma to and from school despite working at the high school his daughter attended. However, in the fifth chapter, Francisco put aside his grudge to carry-out his and Emma's Christmas tradition of watching old home movies from the time Emma's mother was still alive. At the end, he told Emma that no matter what, she was still his daughter and he would always love her. Emma replied that she knew that. Starting in the next chapter (chapter six) it was back to the silent treatment.
In the seventh chapter, Emma asked her dad if he thought her mother would have liked her to name the baby after her. Francisco told Emma that her mother would have been ashamed of her and disappointed in her and she wouldn't have supported her. Emma told him he was wrong and when he asked how she'd know that for sure, Emma told him that her mother had visited her as a spirit on Christmas night. Emma went too far by saying “I wonder why she didn't stop by your room too.” This comment upset Francisco so much that he told her to as her boyfriend's family if she could move in earlier than planned- if she could move in at the end of that week. She did get that inviation but didn't move out until the original date.
It was mentioned that Emma never went to her aunt's house if she wasn't there to hang out with her cousins, and therefore never went to just visit her aunt even though she could have if she wanted too. Ursula was the second adult to support Emma through her teenage pregnancy and her support helped Emma a lot with making her decisions and staying positive. In the second chapter, Ursula gave Emma a ride home from school and lectured Emma's father after hearing from Emma how he had been treating her due to her underage pregnancy. Ursula told Emma that if she ever needed her all she had to do was call.
When Emma had found out about her pregnancy, she didn't want Jax to know. Being around him while he didn't know was very awkward for Emma to the point where she even once avoided him by going to see Lily. Emma managed to act casual when around him by kissing him and holding his hand as she had done before her pregnancy. Emma even joined Jax and his parents for an evening meal at the mansion Jax and his parents lived in. Towards the end of the first chapter, Jax had started noticing that Emma had been distant from him and their kisses didn't feel the same way. He wasn't going to bring it up and he didn't have to. Emma finally told him about the pregnancy, and Jax dumped her on the spot saying their child would be better off without him and that he wasn't ready to be a father. Emma was hurt.
In the third chapter, Jax asked Emma for her forgiveness and for a second chance. At first, Emma didn't believe him. She thought maybe his mother was making him take responsibility for his actions. Though hesitant, Emma decided to give him a second chance if he proved he deserved one. Jax promised he would prove it. Emma was also happy and excited that Jax had come back and knew she had to be cautious and couldn't get her hopes up.
In the fourth chapter, after attending their first ultrasound together, Emma agreed with Jax that he had proven he deserved a second chance. She asked him where their relationship now stood and Jax replied that he wanted them to get back together. Emma was hesitant. Jax pointed out it would good for the baby if her parents were together, and that they were great together and hadn't had any issues in their relationship before the pregnancy. Emma said she wanted to get back together with him but wasn't sure knowing it could end badly. Jax asked her how she planned on having a future if she wasn't willing to take any risks. This convinced Emma to get back together with him and see how it went- or in other words, got back together with him on a trial basis.
In the first chapter, Emma had wanted to get her pregnancy confirmed with Andi by her side, but couldn't because she had promised her cousins to support them while they supported her as they got their pregnancies confirmed. When Emma did find out about Andi's pregnancy, she was just as shocked as Andi was. Emma told Andi she was also pregnant and when Andi said she was sorry, Emma jokingly replied that she had nothing to be sorry for since she hadn't been the one who knocked her up.
It wasn't often that Emma and Andi fought or even argued, in fact, it was extremely rare. In the third chapter, they had an argument. Andi shared with Emma that she was keeping her baby and Emma agreed she'd be a good mother. Emma then told Andi that she was keeping her unborn child as well and was shocked that Andi didn't instantly agree. Emma was then offended by Andi when Andi pointed out that being a single mother wasn't going to be easy and that for Emma's dad it had been different because he had only become a single dad when Emma had been old enough to look after herself. Emma started giving Andi a hard time about who would look after her baby and that Phillip might try to eat the baby. They then quickly let go of their argument when Emma pointed out the risk of the council finding out about Phillip and the baby. Emma promised to help Andi keep him safe and Andi replied that she already was.
In the fourth chapter, Andi was staying with Phillip at all times while he was in hiding. Eventually, Emma had to step in and convince her to go to school before she lost her mind in that small cabin waiting for disaster to happen. After Phillip was captured and Andi was brought to Emma's house, Andi yelled at Emma for having insisted she attend school that morning.
Emma and her cousin Maddie had been super close growing up, but at the start of tenth grade, they were barely on speaking terms. It wasn't known why right away, in the seventh chapter we learned they had drifted apart when they had started high school. In the first chapter, Emma and Maddie got their pregnancies confirmed together. Maddie was happy for Emma when her pregnancy was confirmed. She screamed and hugged her. Emma had no reaction to Maddie's pregnancy aside from being the one who had given her the results. Emma agreed with Andi that Maddie sometimes made it hard to believe she had once been sweet and innocent, though Emma said they had all changed since elementary school.
In the second chapter, Emma almost asked her cousins to wait for her so they could walk to school together but didn't. Also in this chapter, Emma found Maddie outside the cafeteria looking upset and asked her what was up. Maddie informed her that she had encountered the memory of her father's abandonment the night before. Emma comforted her with a hug knowing how much this memory affected her.
While walking to school with her cousins in the third chapter, Emma told Maddie that had dreamed about mother's murder. She suggested that the stress of the pregnancies was the cause since Maddie had previously dreamed of her worst memory. Maddie told Emma she was sorry to hear that she had relieved that memory and agreed with her thoughts on the cause. Later on, Maddie asked Emma if she was going to keep her baby and was quite happy to find out she was. She stated that their babies were going to grow up together and be close and then walked away before Emma could point out that they didn't even get together.
Emma and Katie had once been good friends in elementary school, however, at the start of tenth grade they weren't friends anymore. The reason was never really explained. In the first chapter, Emma found Katie crying in the bathroom and asked her if she wanted to talk. Katie confided in Emma about her rape and pregnancy. Emma let her know she wasn't alone by telling her about her pregnancy and that her father and boyfriend didn't know. Katie asked her if things would get better and Emma replied she hoped they would. They then share a hug- both girls were crying. Later on in the chapter, Katie joined Emma for lunch at school to thank her for talking with her and comforting her in the bathroom.
In the second chapter, the girls shared another personal moment at the park. Katie confided in Emma about second-guessing the abortion because it wasn't something she had ever seen herself doing. Emma asked her if she had talked to anyone about this and Katie replied that she hadn't.
In the fourth chapter, Emma was surprised when Gigi paid her a visit at her house. Gig asked Emma to help her with an art project that required her to make a scrapbook knowing Emma made scrapbooks. Emma showed Gigi some of her scrapbooking pages and they bonded as they talked about Emma's mother. They even hugged. It was said that they had felt like sisters in that bonding moment. In the following chapter, Emma spent a lunch break helping Gigi with her scrapbook and had even brought her personal scrapbooking supplies for Gigi to use.
Emma's relationship with the group
Emma was currently best friends with Andi and had been close with Maddie during childhood, she had also been friends with Katie in elementary school. She had no relationship with Gigi. However, the only one of the group yet to be made that she was still close to and was still friends with was Andi. She had drifted away from her cousin and Katie.
In the second chapter, a misunderstanding happened in the hallway. Katie- who had been walking with Maddie and Sophie- waved to Emma. Emma waved back to her and Maddie thought she had been waving at her, so she waved back to Emma. Emma thought about striking up a conversation with them but went against it. She changed her mind while walking away but it was too late, Maddie and Katie had disappeared with Sophie.
The first time the whole group hung out was in the second chapter during a school lunch period. Maddie was already going to eat with Katie- along with Sophie- and Diego had asked her to invite Gigi to join so she did. She bumped into Emma and Andi outside the cafeteria and decided to invite them to her lunch party and they accepted. Emma talked with the girls about their so far baby decisions and got to see Gigi punch a girl in the nose for calling Maddie a slut. Gigi said she had done it for them all.
In the third chapter, Katie had invited all of the pregnant girls to her house. They hung out in her bedroom and talked about who the temporary guardians of their children would be. In the next chapter, Emma hosted a sleepover with the pregnant girls at her house but there wasn't a whole lot of talking as they went to sleep pretty early on.
In the fourth chapter, Emma helped Maddie and Andi hide Phillip in an abandoned cabin in the woods and stayed with him while Andi attended a swim meet or practice. After being informed by the council that Phillip had been captured, Emma along with Maddie went looking for Andi who they found in the cabin unconscious. Emma and Maddie brought Andi to Emma's house where she'd be safe.
In the sixth chapter, Emma along with Maddie, Jax, Diego, and Daniel, helped Andi move into her new apartment. Also in this chapter, she attended Maddie's sleepover with the other pregnant girls and they talked about personal things. Gigi said they were becoming connected but not exactly as friends. In the seventh chapter, the girls started hanging out in order to become friends. In the next chapter, Emma broke into the council building with the other girls in an attempt to steal Phillip's case file which she didn't find. They were caught by Ramona but Emma managed to talk them out of trouble. Later in the chapter, Emma and the other girls had a sleepover and they each said something about their newfound friendship. Emma said, “My mother wanted me to live happily surrounded by family and friends. That's what I'm doing right now with you four.”
The birth of her daughter
Emma welcomed her daughter Jessica Maria Novoa on the thirteenth of April in the final chapter. It had been a hard birth and Emma slept through most visits from family members, including her dad's visit. Emma made her daughter a promise to always put her first even if that meant sacrificing and even losing her own life, just like her mother had done for her.
