Counterspell [flash 113]
“What did you do to the beast?” Cerwin cried. “You were only supposed to make him docile, not put him in a coma!”
Zully hung her head. “I’m sorry. I tried to follow the spell perfectly, but he fought. He’s so strong, so vigorous.”
Cerwin poked the beast’s foot with a stick, but he remained motionless. “Whatever shall we do?” she moaned.
“Never fear!” Jiva ran up to them with a bottle in her hands. “I’ve conjured a counterspell. Zully, sprinkle a pinch of this powder on the flames next to his head.”
Zully, in her eagerness to rectify her error, dumped the entire bottle into the fire.
“Nooooooo!” screamed Jiva and Cerwin.
