Anthony could feel his strength coming back, his whole body seemed to tingle as the regenerative powers of the elixir worked its mysterious wonder. Shaking the rest of the fog out of his head he lifted Alexia onto his horse, he couldn't help noticing how his hands nearly encircled her waist.

To friends and said, "See, I'm always protected."
They laughed. But luck comes from the gods;
If there were proof of it anywhere, it would be in my

I see the snake again-or is it a different spinach-coloured snake?
It's the same road.
It's the same me, walking along with a crab-apple bush

(My brain is bad at props)
My spinach snake is
