Unsightly Hair Growth

Photo by: Marie Gail

Mireya the young witch desired the Woodsmith’s son, Bryce. One day she learned that he admired long lustrous hair. So during the full moon she planted a magical seed.

The flower grew and bloomed, but in the morning the petals were all gone. “Oh no! My magic flower.”

“What’s wrong?” said her sister, Weylyn.

“My flower. It was going to give me long beautiful hair.”


“Simple. Just harvest the petals, douse them in water, and apply them to the skin.”

Weylyn grimaced and scratched her itchy legs. “Uh oh.”


“What if I bathed in the petals?”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    Poor Mireya, her sister will steal not only her flower, but her crush as well. After all, how could Bruce resist Wylyn when she’ll have long, lustrous hair all over?

    Reminds me of a naughty girl I knew years ago – couldn’t resist having a dabble. Made me laugh.

    Very funny tale, Eric. Maybe Weylyn can just “magic” the hair off her legs and onto Mireya’s head.

    Mireya never said where he admired long lustrous hair. Weylyn stands a good chance.

    Oops! An important life lesson: when your sister is a witch, don’t touch her things without checking first!

    Lovely! If I’d been Mireya, I’d have left Weylin to have the hair removed by electrolysis. It costs a lot of money, and it hurts! That’s a really wacky take on the prompt, EagleAye!
