Five Sentence Fiction – Potions

Word Prompt- Potions

She paused briefly that morning to read the daily horoscopes, one line in particular making her smile –   ‘ Your potions will cause a commotion’

Really, she thought to herself as she sprayed the new Calvin Klein perfume ‘ Lust’ on her wrists, how do they come up with such ludicrous statements?

Yet on the walk to the bus stop that morning, two Jack Russel Terriers and a Tom Cat, followed her on ground level, a flock of homing pigeons circled her from above.

As she waited for the bus, a  teenage boy, who looked all of 14, blushed as he remarked that she smelt like buttered popcorn

Not quite the commotion she was expecting….but a commotion just the same….Calvin Klein’s ‘Lust’ had gone to work, just not in a very conventional way!
