Lingering Thought

Walking around the town in early morning in after a desperate night, you find the strangest places. Their dwellers can show you things that you though impossible. You just have to have an open mind.


7. Mirror

I opened my eyes. And saw myself looking at me. I knew I was back in the real world again. It was the same room where I first stared into Madam MacGregor's eyes. But it seemed we swapped places. I looked at my hands. They were old and full of wrinkles. Oh, joy, I had become a full featured old lady.

I let go of my own hands. He, me, looked at me with a suspicious look. I needed time to think, this is too bizarre.

"This one is on the house. You'll meet a perfect girl and even have some cash on hand to spend with her. Brighten up! Oh..." I stopped for a bit, and then continued:
"Only thing you need to do is to take 6 chicken legs, put them in a grinder, spit in there and grind to a fine powder. During the next full moon use it to wash you hair."

He looked like he didn't really just hear that, but didn't speak. I then showed him to the door, closed it behind and smiled.

"This. Is. Not. Happening." I said slowly, with the smile now gone.


This was the final moment. I quickly reflected on what happened in the last month in this old body. Let's just say that getting old in a minute is probably more shocking than if they ease you in with 50 years of life.

I rummaged around most of the memories. There were a lot of locked ones, but I wasn't really that interested to figure out how to brake into them. I found all the stashes of money hidden around the house and in the vaults. There was a lot of it. I created a little fond to benefit a certain someone, under the pretense of a long lost wealthy family. He now had enough for the rest of his life.

Hell, I even found him a date. If you saw the list of people who came to see fortune tellers, you'd know this one was a little gem. I could feel myself falling for her even in this body, which made me a bit sick.

As night fell, the only light was coming from a candle flame. I liked the smell. Next to it was a glass of red wine. And an elephant dose of pills.
