“Whoever’s that?” Elsie nodded towards the young woman who’d entered the coffee shop and slipped a full length cloak from her shoulders, displaying a manner of dress twice as peculiar.

“Oh, that’s Mab,” said Joyce.

“I thought Mab was that old witch who lives next door to you.”

“She died. This one’s her heir. She’s just as strange; saw her dancing round the garden at midnight… barely dressed. Said she was honouring the moon goddess. As for that ferret…”

Mab smiled. She might be three-hundred and forty-nine, but looked pretty good for her age. Rejuvenation spells definitely had their uses!

    They sure definitely have. I can see the reason she dances barely dressed every midnight. They’re true ‘Mab’s Secret’.

    Yes, for rejuvenation spells. I can just imagine two busybody gossips talking about an attractive young woman. I appreciate your humorous story, Carrie.

    Carrie, I agree with Linda. I really enjoy your Mab-stories. I couldn’t help wondering where her familiar was? Luckily, he didn’t mess things up for her this time! If my memory serves me right, he caused quite a bit of trouble in the past?

    Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
