CYANOROD -- 3
By Forrest W. Schultz
In the estate I inherited from my benefactor the house is mine to live in, the books in its library are mine to read, and the 100 acres of woodland are mine to walk in. But the Cyanorod is NOT mine to summon, nor is it mine to use as I please. The Cyanorod only appears at its discretion, not mine. And, although I did wield it during its first two appearances, I followed its commands: it told me what to do; I did not tell it what to do! The Cyanorod is not magic; and I am not a magician!
This morning the Cyanorod made its third and final appearance to me and gave its last command to me. This command is to bestow it upon Cara Coer, who will henceforth be its wielder. Then Cara suddenly appeared and I performed this bestowal. This concludes my tales of The Cyanorod. To learn of the Cyanorod's future acts, you will need to ask Cara.
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu
To you and you and you and you and you!!
