When tragedy befalls her, his grief lasts months; finally he rejoins the colorful life around him, marrying Palagna. She wants children but his mind stays on his lost love. To recapture his attention, Palagna tries sorcery, and in the process comes under the spell of the sorcerer, publicly humiliating Ivan, who then fights the sorcerer.

  • I can just say what a relief to locate someone who actually knows what theyre discussing on the net. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light making it important. Lots more people should see this and understand why side in the story. I cant believe you aren’t widely used as you definitely have the gift.
