Skin of Toad

Terry Whidborne, for Witch Week

Eye of newt, skin of toad.

It was getting harder to get ingredients. Sure, she could just pop into town and down to Jenkin’s Alchemy & Apocrathereum, but the Mistress wouldn’t approve.

Nothing but the best. Organics only.

So here she was, knee-deep in mud and muck and frog-juices.

What’s the difference between a frog and a toad? Or a newt and a salamander, for that matter? They’re all bloody amphibians! She couldn’t tell, but the Mistress could, on sight.

Better grab a bucket-full.

And she had thought witchcraft would be glamorous.
