Confessions of a Three Eyed Fag Hag

I wasn't sure of the time difference, but I decided to call Merlin.

"Green Oak Man—" Grey's voice was interrupted by an infant's wail. "Oh, I do apologize."

"Grey, it's Tia. I need to speak to Merl."

"Amalthea!" Grey is the only person I let call me by my real name. Of course, he's over in Wales so I can't argue with him – or whack him. "Oh, darling. Merlin's sleeping, we've had such a time. Jeffrey came home with a bug – now Douglas, Rufus and Daisy all have it and our poor little Rosie-bud. . ." The infant whimpered. "Has an ear ache. Merlin was exhausted. Is it anything I can help with?"

"Well, there's this young man who's been wandering around the area for about three years. . ."

"Oh, _darling_!"

"No, no, no, _no_!" I yelped. "Everyone thought his brain was fried. I got a look at his aura tonight – whatever happened to him, he's got the Sight and it is out of control. I doubt he can tell the difference between hallucination and premonition."

"Have you called your Mother?"

"Mother was . . . Mother."

"Oh. Dear." Grey sighed. "That _is_ bad. Shh, Rosie-bud, shh," he cooed. "I'm sorry, Amalthea, it's time for her ear drops. I'll have Merlin call as soon as he wakes up. I suggest you start with South Gin."


"New Zealand Gin. Yes, dear. Remember Katherine's wedding to that lovely fellow from the North Island – can't remember its name or his but he had that impressive tattoo. . . The Gin started shutting down everyone's auras, not to mention making things rather giddy. I think it might have something to do with the manuka berries or the kawa kawa leaves they use for flavoring. I suspect it's easier to get the gin than the berries or the leaves."

There was a loud commotion from the bathroom.

"What was that?"

"Ziggy, the guy I told you about. He's trying to get into Pavel's pants. Keeps calling him "pretty puppy."

"Good luck to him! A little sex works wonders! You should try it sometime, dear. Oh, yes, yes, Rosie-bud. Ta for now, love!"

Damn it, why is everyone trying to get me laid?

Lol- I've been reading this sporadically as I can't always log on- but I'll have to go back and read the other bits because it's making me laugh.
I love the concept, and am so glad your miniNano is going well!

I'm glad you like it! To me it's bogged a bit because it's the middle and sort of meandering before it sets up for the ending.
