Seeing through a Glass Darkly (2)

I would not believe death was the end.

As instructed I’d collected the herbs and spell from the apothecary.

Standing by the mirror, after drinking the mixture I waited for the glass to darken.

Would I get a glimpse of you?

The moment came.

You smiled, then you were gone.

Now I’m alone again. Heart heavy, purse lighter, waiting for another sickle moon.

Thank you, Eileen for your story. Funny how the dark side comes out a lot in these challenges. I know when I write them myself they tend to move that way too.

What does everyone else think?
