Day 5 - 250 words
Confessions of a Three Eyed Fag Hag

She was staring at my forehead where I have a little glamour to hide the dratted thing. It looks like I have a scar.

"What can I do for you, Patrice?" I asked to get back to the point of her visit.

"I want a love potion," she said.

"You've got be kidding." I couldn't help it. She's always been tall, blonde, gorgeous in about every way most people define the world. I'm medium height, medium brown hair and was assured by the mirror and my five older brothers that I was a plain Jane even before the stupid third eye popped up.

Her face went pink, then it went white. "I want him to love me!"

"Who?"

She told me his name and I asked her again if she was kidding. Her face said she wasn't. He was a big name star with a reputation for hard partying and harder living. She'd met him when he came to play the War Memorial five months ago and had been dumb enough to go back to his hotel room.

She was pregnant. I appealed to the ceiling with all three eyes as she yammered on about how he had said she was different and how his current wife didn't understand him and all she had to do was make him realize how much he needed her, et cetera. I've heard it before, in a dozen different keys and timbres – same old song.

And my family wonders why I'm a cynic.
