Confessions of a Three Eyed Fag Hag

"He's going to have a wake-up call soon. A warning from his body that he's screwed with it one too many times. He will change. He will think about his children; not just yours, there are ten with claims on his name; two by his first wife and others by one night stands like yours. He will write them a song that will let them know how much he loves them." I opened all three of my eyes. "It will be beautiful."

"But what about me?" she demanded.

"You? Your son will know he had a father that loved him even though he couldn't be with him. Isn't that good enough?" I closed my third eye and called up the glamour.

No, it wasn't. I could see it in her face.

"Are you going to give me a potion?"

"No!" I snapped. "Didn't you listen to me? It won't give you what you want. It won't make you happy. I'm not in the business of making things worse than they are."

She went red and stood up. I stood up as well. Pavo padded out of the stairwell to stand next to me and glare at her. Pavo was in canine form, which meant he looked like a very large black dog with yellow moon eyes and upright ears. If Patrice was thinking of taking a swing at me, she'd regret it. I laid my hand between his ears as he growled.

"I can find another witch to give me a love potion!" she finally spat.

"I'm not a witch," I retorted. "I'm a mage. A witch is a practitioner of the Wicca religion which I don't. You can go try to find someone else and get what you want; but I guarantee you won't like it once you get it."

"You're still just a jealous, ugly hag!" she shouted.

"And you're still a dumb blonde asshole," I said to the slammed door.

Enjoying this so far. Have you written or started something similiar or is it based on a short story you've written before?

I swear I'm getting a strong sense of deja vu from this from something you were working on before.

Yes, I did write a version of this sometime ago. I'm expanding on it and bringing in more of Tia's world. :)

Cool! It was an interesting concept, and I'm glad I'm not losing it, well not as much anyway.
