I couldn't get a hold of Mandy after what happened, but we talked on Sunday morning. She was fine. We agreed that after the night before, it would be safe if she went back to stay at Antony's place for a little while. Just until we figure out what happened.

I didn't tell her about Morgan's visit. Not yet. But I will. I just wanted to figure out first what happened, where she came from all of a sudden, and what force was at work behind it all.

And I got thinking... If it was Minx who "fixed" those orgasms that prevented me from having sex with Morgan, then she's not the one who got Morgan to show up and come on to me in the first place.

So I decided to have a chat with Minx, and asked her what was her part in all of this. The thing about Minx is, she's a pretty bad liar. She has the poker face of a three year-old. Her answer was one of those "Nothiiiiiiiiing" that screams "I'm lying." So I asked her a few more questions.

"Minx, seriously, did you do this to me? To the point of fainting?"


"You lost an opportunity to watch me have sex with Morgan."

"Who?" she asked.

"The lady with the big boobs."

"Oh, her. Well, your orgasms were fun to watch."

Uh huh. Then I had a light bulb moment.

"And isn't that an uncanny coincidence that Mandy had the SAME problem, around the SAME time, and didn't show up at 8PM, when she was supposed to."

"Ah... I suppose."

I pressed on, feeling I was on to something.

"Minx, did you curse Mandy, just like you cursed me?"

She shuffled a guilty foot around the other.

"And what if I did?"

"I knew it! You DID this to us!"

She shrugged, so I continued.

"You're the one who gave us all those orgasms! And I'm willing to bet you did this to stop me from sleeping with Morgan. And to stop Mandy from showing up and seeing her there!"

Minx frowned unhappily.

"Are you insinuating I would have HELPED you?" she asked, her glare threatening. I could see this could be an issue, so I backed down.

"Um... Ah... I mean... No, of COURSE not! You did this for your own entertainment, not AT ALL to do me a favor! I didn't insinuate that you might have shirked your duties as a proper faerie and actually HELPED a human being."

"Good." She was pouting, now.

"But if you HAD done this deliberately, and if it HAD had a beneficial side effect for Mandy and myself, it WOULD be proper for me to express gratitude, right?"

She concentrated a moment, then nodded. "I guess, yes."

"So, I'm NOT thanking you now, but personally, I'm glad I got off with JUST those orgasms and nothing else."

And there you have it, folks. Some faeries may have a heart after all. Not that I'm suggesting Minx has one. I'm just sayin'...
