Strange Brew
by Tiffany H. White

“They must think I’m a mug.”  the sugar bowl says, fed up with cup-a-soup abuse. “Bit of a crackpot theory, old china.” smirks the milk jug, melting the butter with a wink as the pot calls the kettle a bad word: the kettle’s nearly at boiling point

There’s trouble on the brew in hell’s kitchen.

Hecate stirs things up with an adder’s fork and plenty of spit. Charming Circe thinks, tells her sister she's  weird then asks “Isn’t Endora cooking tonight?”

“Make no bones about it” Hecate cackles “She is.”

The pot bubbles over with a whizz-pop noise and turns rather red.
