Bonnie was running away from her past and he (your character) was trying not to. He's young, in his late twenties and, recently divorced his high school sweetheart. He felt like all he had now was the small, local bar that he owned but, some days he felt like even that would end.
Until the night when she came in and he felt something that he had not felt in a while. Another witch had entered town. She was so powerful that he could sense her from a mile away. The moment she entered his bar chills went down his spine. Although there were a few in town including his ex-wife, witches didn't visit the small town in Massachusetts after the trials. He had to get to know her and found out why she was there.
