The Oil of Sage: Episode 4

12 December, 2016

Stiffly, he rose to his feet and straightened his back. Hobbling to the door he bolted it fast and then turned and extinguished all but one of the candles. He lifted a smooth, unadorned silver bowl from a shelf and set it on a low table near the embers of the fire. Beside the door stood a silver jug with water that his servant had collected last full moon from the hill streams nearby.
Carefully, the old man poured the water into the bowl, not spilling a drop. Setting the jug on the floor he waited for the water in the bowl to become still, feeling the ache in legs and back. He waited, feeling the minutes pass towards midnight. Eventually he stooped and breathed once on the water’s surface.
Mist swirled in the clear depths, parting to reveal rocky crags and moss-covered trees. Merlin stared silently, watching the visions as they unfolded to reveal a twisted, grey peak of stone. He shivered as he waved a hand over the bowl and the pictures vanished…
What has Merlin seen in the scrying bowl? What will Dracomagan and her friends do next in order to rescue Parsley’s lover?

The front cover looks like metal in liquid form, like copper. I appreciate it is blue but the shape looks similar! S Michel
I have just finished reading The Essence of Thyme to the end, what a wonderful tale! C Messelodi
Thanks for sending me through The Essence of Thyme. I always enjoy reading about Dracogmagan. That girl has attitude! E Baxter
Thank you for sending me Clippings, I always read it eagerly. I probably expected The Essence of Thyme to end more traditionally as a fairy tale, but I don’t think we have seen the last of Parsley and the green globe. It’s good fun to read and I love the language. J Hunter
Essence of time reads beautifully, wasn’t the ending expected.  Look forward to reading more of your work. N Roper
I’ve been reading all your letters and emails and The Essence of Thyme which was wonderful, thank you. W Thomas
