My Shorts, and Flash Fictions - 2. Prompt #518 - First Line: “Who gave you the right to read my journal?”

A short Prompt story, using it for practice.

“Who gave you the right to read my journal?” Gavin asked in a stern voice.

“You did, last night,” was the reply from Kyle.

“I was drunk! You’re using it against me,” Gavin said while narrowing his eyes, and approached Kyle.

Kyle looks over the edge of the journal book, and smiles some, “Sit down. Besides, you read mine last night. Also, I wouldn’t call this a journal. It seems more like a book of shadows. I knew you dabbled in Witchcraft, but I didn’t think you were this serious about it.”

Sighing defeated, he sits down next to his lover, and curls up to him, looking over his shoulder, “You could call it that. I use it for my practice, it has spells, rituals, prayers to my gods, and my collected thoughts. I’m not superstitious like some others, so it’s fine that you’re looking at it.”

Kyle turns his head some, and kisses Gavin on the cheek, before turning back to the book. “It says here, you don’t believe in love spells, but you have seen one done?”

“Yes. One of the other witches in my Coven thought he needed a new love, and had a crush on Channing Tatum. He found someone that looked like him and tried the love spell. It worked too. For a one night stand Hook-up and this was after he turned him down first. But remember, magic comes at a cost, and using it for selfish reasons, tends to bite you in the ass. He ended up with a horrible case of Crabs from it.” Gavin laughs remembering the incident. “We banned him from the circle after that.”

“No, shit?” Kyle asks while laughing.

“No, shit,” Gavin confirms. “Now, this spell is a cooperative spell, which only lovers can do. It enhances the senses during sex, and both partners, need to be fully committed to each other and practicing witches. I’ve wanted to cast it for you, but I know you don’t practice, or believe in the art.”

“No, I believe in it,” Kyle says. “It’s that I’m not talented with magic like my good looking witch is.” He leans in for a passionate kiss, which Gavin returns.

Soon enough, the journal is on the table closed, as the two lovers, head to the bedroom, for a different kind of magic.

Good job.. I like the little playfulness at the end. 

Thank you! I was trying to be playful with this short, and I am glad it came across like that.

Well done on a difficult prompt line. The shift in verb tense (from past to present) in the beginning is a bit jarring, though. I liked the idea that selfish magic will cost you. :lol:

Whoops... Did not notice the verb change, so thanks for pointing that out. I dabbled* briefly with witchcraft, *coughs* Don't judge, *coughs* and that was the major point made by the people who taught me. Selfishness will bite you in the ass.

 

 

 

 

*By dabbled, I mean, I fully through myself into for a period of time, as part of my spirituality. Seen some stuff, but can't really describe the experience.

Loved this , so subtly sets out the Lore! 

Thank you for reading! I try, though I sometimes end up being a bit more heavy handed when it comes to lore and stuff.
