This is a joke and not related to my story 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams'. Let's imagine that that hasn't happened yet, or it was a dream. I love my Let too much to let (LOL weird joke) her remain dead! I have somewhat stolen the 'Eye of Maginatte' from Anthony Horowitz's story 'Return to Groosham Grange', where something called the 'Eye of Horus' prevented magic being used. I just... adapted it slightly.

Leto was travelling through a cave with James, her new boyfriend, in the middle of an escape from someone who had seen them travelling on the street, recognised Leto and kidnapped her, planning to later hand her over to the people who wanted her.

"Dammit, they know about my magic." Leto muttered. James somehow heard.

"How?" he asked.

"They have Eyes of Maginatte in here."


Leto sighed at her boyfriend's ignorance. "An Eye of Maginatte is something that senses my magic and star sign. If I try to use magic, it causes a burning sensation in my head."

James took this information in for a moment, then asked, "Why a burning sensation?"

"Because I'm a fire spirit. It basically steals my magic abilties and uses them against me if I try to use them."

"Oh." Somewhat confused at his girlfriend's wording, James puzzled over it for a few more seconds. He wanted to ask her more, but she seemed frustrated.

"Let...o?" he said, quickly remembering that the young fire spirit did not take well to the nickname of 'Let', although he had never found out why.


"Why is the burning sensation in your head?"

"Because I'm an Aries. The body part associated with Aries is the head. The body part associated with your star sign tends to draw in pain and damage, such as the sensations from Eyes of Maginatte. The kind of pain you feel is associated with your element. Like I'm a fire spirit, I have a burning sensation, and... um, I forgot about the other ones."

"That must be really painful." James commented.

Leto shrugged. Feeling the need to play the optimist, she replied, "Well, it could be worse. I could be a Scorpio."


A little astrology type joke there. If you don't get it, think about what Let said, the body part associated with your star sign draws the pain. What part of the body is associated with Scorpio? OK, you can probably guess from my suggestive tone. I know you can't hear it, but I've given you the clues you need to work out that I'm using it.
