Payment Due is about a witch switching bodies with a cat so she would be better enabled to spy on the bailiff who had taken some of her grandmother's belongings. In order to retrieve them, she had to enter his home as his cat. It was a risky switcheroo as the cat wasn't very pleasant while in her body but whatever. She was able to save the day I guess. 

 

I didn't like the next story. A Handful of Ashes. Ugh! For gosh sakes I couldn't stop yawning and dozing off but finally this morning I persevered. Trudged through the muck and mire of a mess. It was a terribly written short story, that happens in a witch school * unlike Harry Potters Hogwarts * Some names and things I was not familiar with like Ogham, Brythonic, geas, sizars I mean wtf? 

 

So we're off to a slow start in Fraterfest RAT but no worries. I slept for about 8 hours. It is 9:46 AM
