An experiment goes awry, making Edwin hallucinate about a strange man with snakes.

“I don’t think that’s right,” Edwin said as he stared at the formula. Calculations were scrawled across the paper, at times crossing over other calculations and then doubling back. They’d checked the formula twice but he had a feeling they were forgetting something. Again.

The potion bubbled and hissed loudly. “Of course it’s right.” Charles leaned forward and examined the liquid as it changed color. He shifted the blow torch in his hand, raising it higher on the glass. The potion bubbled over the top of the beaker.

Saki took a step back placing Edwin between himself and the potion. “Does that sound a bit off to you?”

A loud hissing noise filled the room every time one of the bubbles from the potion popped. “I really don’t think it’s supposed to be doing that.” Edwin started to step closer, to take the torch away from Charles so they could dump the whole thing and start over. A snake’s head appeared in the center of the beaker, rising up above the bubbles as more of its body emerged. “Shit.”

Edwin knocked over a container of remoraxia as he flailed backwards. There were two sprigs from their firia tree on the bench. He grabbed them, waving at the potion as a second snake appeared. The snakes flicked their tongues in the air, pausing for a moment as if sniffing. Their heads quickly turned towards the humans and for a moment Edwin thought he saw something strange flash in their black eyes.

“I’ll just leave you two to clean this up,” Saki said as he turned and sauntered out of the room.

  1. I wonder how the meeting with the family went. Would Alric freak out even more when he realizes Edwin was NOT hallucinating? Any chance of a sequel or even a drabble to show what the daily life of Edwin is like with Unshaela in it?

      1. I CAN’T wait for when that happens!
