Prompt: Handshake


"So where do I sign?"

"Well, sir, with all due respect, these things are generally done by handshake."

"Is that so? You claim to be fully licensed and bonded, and at your rates, you should be able to afford the taxes and fees."

"Sir, you misunderstand. If the agreement is on paper before the spell is cast, the effects are... unpredictable. I strongly recommend you reconsider."

"So you can screw me? I’ll take the risk."

"A, as you wish, sir."

I’ve learned two things: First, listen to magicians’ warnings. Second, flies can be delicious with a little butter and garlic.
