Babies 18,19,20,21,22,23 the witch returns?

I sat on the sofa. Tapping at the rests, I wasn't quite sure what tune it was. But I liked it, it meant something to me- in a strange, unidentifiable way.

Alex walked in, a steaming mug in his hand " Still remember that day?" He handed me the cup of tea and I held it close to my chest.

" What do you mean?" I asked

" That tune" He began " Don't you remember?" He stood up and looked at me. Making his way to the stereo, he mumbled to himself. " Right" He turned the notch until he came to a static station " Hang on" He grinned bashfully at me " Got it!" The static stopped and was replaced by a tune. My belly fluttered as the song brought back memories.

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no

Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss

Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do

You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

He took my hand " Our song"

He dragged me up, grabbing my waist and then my hand. Pulling me into his warm embrace I allowed my love to wash over me. We stepped side to side, in a lost attempted to dance. He spun me around and I fell clumsily into his arms. He laughed at me then lifted me onto his toes. I leaned my head on his chest as we moved as one. I looked up at him, staring into his eyes he bent down to kiss me and I closed my eyes

Ding dong

I sighed as the moment passed. I walked to the door, this had better be important.

" M-m-mum?" my heart sank, and my back automatically straightened. I closed the door slowly. Watching my mothers face sink with every inch it moved.

" Who is it?" Asked Alex as I entered the room " Are you OK Lecci? You look pale" He peered out of the window " There appears to be an old woman standing outside. What did she want?"

" That's something I have been asking all of my life" I felt sick

He looked at me " Can we invite her in? Electra" He too my hands, peering into my eyes " Who is she?"

" My mother"


I sat silently on the sofa. Looking down at my feet. My mother sat straight in the armchair, as if she had a ruler up her ass.

" So..." Alex put down a cup of coffee next to my mother " How have you been?" He sat down next to me.

My mother looked at me " Please don't try make conversation with me boy. You bore me"

" O-" He curled in on himself " Okay.." I felt for him, he was just trying to be nice, as always

" Elizabeth Darling, how have you been?" She asked taking a gentle sip of coffee

" My name is NOT Elizabeth! It's Electra I-" I cleared my throat " Very good. My challenge is going well. I am engaged-"

" Sorry love" She leaned forward " Engaged? To whom may I ask?" Her voice was controlling

" Alex Windfield" I said. Alex put his hand on my lap and I placed my hand on top. 

" Who is Alex?" She asked, resting back into the chair

" Don't you read my blog?" I asked

" Oh God no dear" She let out a forced laugh " It was our Petunia that told me about your challenge"

" Well this is Alex" I looked at him and he kissed me

" Stop that" She grumbled " Why do you want to marry the boy?" Her voice was twinged with spite " What does he work as? Good money I hope"

" He doesn't have a job yet. But he is joining the armed forces soon"

" Indeed" She looked at him with judgmental eyes " Have you made a good life for yourself then?" She asked me

" I have actually. You say Petunia told you about my challenge. So it is even big in England?" I looked hopeful

" Apparently so. I must admit at first when she mentioned it she was joking. With you being-"

" With me being what?" I asked

" It doesn't matter"

I hated that woman. I clenched my fists, trying not to embed my hand in her skull. Alex looked sympathetically at me.

I stood up. Alex looked at me and shook his head. I took a deep breath  " I want you to leave."

Mother looked shocked " What? Why?"

" You insulted my Fiance" I shouted " You insult my job, my life and what ever 'me being' is!" I calmed myself down " Go!"


" GO!" She scurried up and wobbled to the door.

I sat back down next to Alex " Are you OK sweet heart?" He pulled me into a hug

" No" I sat and wept into his chest, he gently stroked my hair as I cried into his shirt

" Electra?" He lifted my chin with his finger " Do you want some cheering up?" He winked

I let all of the tears leave me, leaving only a grin.


I tied my dressing-gown and walked downstairs. I went to check the mail, I picked up a brown envelope which read: 'Elizabeth Danton' 

I opened it, this could only be from one person. 

Elizabeth, I suspect you know whom this letter is from. To start with I would just like to apologize for my misdeeds earlier. I came into your home and insulted you, for this I am truly sorry. Please allow me to make it up to you; diner perhaps.
Sincerely Mother.

I wasn't sure what to feel, she had never once apologized to me before. I stood, glued to the ground with thought

" What are you going to do?" Alex's voice made me jump

" I-I don't know"

" Maybe you should go, hear what she has to say"

" I guess-"

He hugged me from behind " I'll come with you" He kissed me on the neck repeatedly as I giggled.

We got ready to leave. Alex hadn't worn a suit since Natalie's wedding and he looked great. I was wearing a pretty little dress, nothing too fancy, nor too modest.

" You look stunning" Alex grabbed my arm, we walked to the taxi.

The restaurant mum had booked was fancy, but then- what did I expect from her. The waiter took my shawl. I spotted my mother; taking in a deep breath I walked, arm-in-arm with Alex.

" Sit" She took a sip of her wine

We did so obediently.

" Now, I bet you're wondering why I have summoned you here" She said

We nodded.

" Your brother Elizabeth-"

" Is he okay?" I asked leaning forward

" He has, run into some financial difficulty" She took another sip

I was angry " You came all of this way-" Alex grabbed my arm and pulled me down "- To take my money? After everything that I went through!"

" With you being suddenly successful and all"

" He's a doctor! He makes good money!" I screamed

" Calm down Elizabeth, you're making a scene. Your brother gave some money to a relative. Now he is... Broke"

" BROKE!? So now that your favorite child is broke, you come to me!? Is that it!?"

" Yes- I mean" She shut her eyes in frustration " No"

" I'll bale him out, because he's my brother. My twin brother, and I owe him that much! You however-" I picked up a knife " Get out of my life!" Realizing what I was doing I put down the knife gently.

" W-w-wait!" She called out to me " You- Boy!" Alex froze, I could see he was angry, I had never seen him angry before, I was looking forward to seeing what was next.

" Don't call me Boy!" He picked up a bowl of soup from a table " My name is Alexander Windfeild and I will marry your daughter, love her like you never did!" He poured the bowl of soup over her head. My mothers face was contorted with disgust and embarrassment.
Alex and I walked out, arms interlocked. We strolled out purposefully. As we left the doors we doubled over in laughter, I love Alex so much.


I sat on the floor with Alex. He sat with his arms crossed, sulking like a baby " You cheated"

" No I didn't- I won" I sat smugly

" But Nickerfizwits is not a word"

" Is too" I smiled " but you are too stupid to know it"

" Don't go there" He grinned mischievously " Elizabeth"

I leaped onto him and shouted in his face " My name is NOT Elizabeth"

He laughed " Okay Okay"

" AAAAAh" I screamed

" Electra? Are you okay?"

" No!" I yelled " The baby is coooming!"

" Oh no, Oh no!" He panicked


Apparently Alexander is ridiculously fertile. I had Sextuplets, all as adorable as the next. I named them:


I sat with Mordrid and Gawain, Merlin in the crib. Alex tried to handle the other three with little success. My first sextuplets. With my first true love. My life, was only going to get better from here on in.

Hopefully this picture of Mofussa will give you a better impression of this post ^_^


  1. As painful to read as it was to write.
    And that's an interesting spelling of Mordred. But otherwise good.
