"Blood-curdling..." -- Part 25

After what seemed an interminable time, through many strange smells permeating the room, through a long litany of unknowable words and incantations by Devorah, Haggis was finally given permission to open her eyes and stand.

"Well?" demanded Haggis of her benefactress. "Am I human again?"

"Passable," Devorah conceded. "You will never be fully human, old girl, but I daresay you'll do."

"Well, what do I look like?" Haggis asked impatiently.

"See for yourself," said Devorah. "There is a looking glass yonder, on the dark side of the stairs."

NOOOOOOOOOO! Devorah what have you done?

Serena Joy said...

Ahhhhhh, but you must trust that Devorah knows what she's doing, for there is such a thing as ... karma.:)

I think she just wants some free eggs.

Serena Joy said...

I don't know; she's probably not that hard up. She probably has chickens running around the fortress grounds. And if not, she's a ... sorceress. She could conjure up some eggs. Hmmmm. Could be that Devorah's looking into the future a little bit, seeing the bigger picture. :)
