Rochelle’s challenge this week is prompted by this magical image: photo courtesy of Ronda Del Boccio
“Trevor – have you brought the necessaries ?”
“Yes Alfreda – one sacred flame, one box matches, two toads and a Bodhran drum.”
“Time to shed our earthly vestments, coven members, and join hands to circle the holy stone. Let the chanting begin….”
“We salute you oh sacred spirit, we ask for magic forgetfulness, we ask for visions…”
“Trevor, what is that apparition on top of the stone, shrouded by a miasma ?”
“Keep circling Alfreda…the mist is clearing. I can see clearly now, our prayers are answered.
Oh sacred guardian, we thank you for your gift.”

Fun story, and they’ll all have hangovers, but I guess it’s worth it 🙂

I appreciate your feedback. Potcheen is very strong- so definitely hangovers…

Forgetfulness, visions – they knew what they wanted. And the results seem just the thing to provide it. Great twist. Loved it.
