#1MinFiction: Love Potion

“…crushed sage, a sliver of white oak bark. Stir, simmer. One final ingredient…”

Letty drops a lock of Jim’s hair into the pot. “And this will make him love me?”

The woman ladles the gruel, a deep red, like blood. She dips her finger, draws Letty in by her chin, applies it like lipstick. “One kiss, and he’s yours forever.”

—Nortina
