Confessions of a Three Eyed Fag Hag

Well, there was only one place I could think of that might have gin that was still open at that time was Maddy's. Maddy always claimed to have the most exotic selection of spirits in the whole city. I called and after listening to the ringing for almost three minutes managed to get Vinnie, Ginger's boyfriend and the main bar tender on the line. I had to scream at him to get him to understand what I was after.

Naturally, Maddy showed up with the gin – dragging poor Roger behind him.

Roger looked a little shell shocked. Pavel brought Ziggy out. He'd washed him and put him in a set of his own sweats. The dark blue made Ziggy look paler and his eyes look bluer. His short, fluffy blond hair fell all wispy around his face.

"Who's this?" Roger asked.

"Pavel, our Magic Girl's sworn brother and protector and Ziggy Stardust, our lost lamb." Maddy shook his head. "Are you sure this is going to help, Magic Girl?"

"According to my brother-in-law it should." I poured a shot of the gin.

"Fire." Ziggy stated. "He wants it to burn. He wants it all torn down. Magic Girl's weapon is the truth. The truth stops the burning."

"Drink this." I handed it to him. He swallowed it and made an awful face.

Grey was right. His aura stopped flaring. Two more shots and it had damped down to a thin rime of light. I made some mint tea for Maddy and Roger.

"You okay now, Ziggy?" asked Maddy.

"Ziggy?" he blinked. "Oh, yeah. I know everyone here calls me that, but that's not my name. My name is Jopher. Jopher Arkan."
