Confessions of a Three-Eyed Fag Hag

I lit a pink candle for thoughts of love and put the votive glass next to the enameled box that held my tarot cards. "Sit down." Patrice looked at my kitchen/consulting table like it was dirt. I resented that. I bought this table from the Salvation Army with honest money I earned. My aunt embroidered the table cloth I use when I'm consulting. "What are you willing to pay?" I asked.

"I have money." She started digging in her designer purse.

"I'm not talking money. I mean karma. I mean in what goes around comes around and be careful what you wish for because once you've got it -- you've got to deal with it." I dropped the glamour, opened my third eye and rolled it counterclockwise at her. She scooted her chair as far away from the table as she could without knocking over the bookcase.

Once my eye was open I started to "see". "He has already been given one love potion. It was by the woman who is now his second wife. The one who doesn't understand him. She's paying the price for it. She's married to a man who thinks it's fidelity if he uses a condom and you see how well _that_ worked. She gets to see his love affairs and the results of them in every tabloid in print while she has nothing but a big, empty house and a generous allowance." I closed my real eyes and focused the third eye on the candle flame. I can't tell you that if you do A and B you'll get C. It doesn't work that way. I see patterns, maybe this, maybe that --some patterns are clearer than others. Lucas got one thing right; always changing the future is; so don't bet on it.

People never get exactly what they want with magic, do they? It will be interesting to see Patrice's reaction!

It raises the interesting question, is the cheating the same if you only married the person because of a love potion?
