There’s no way I’m going to be able to save this but for the grace of Larrakane.” She cast off the mittens and palmed her face in her hands, her golden skin deeply contrasted by her small black horns.
Stamping her hooves, she started to mumble to herself: “But if I can cool it and mix it with a little powder, it may at least be a half-time potion. Yes, I—” She cut off and started to whizz around the room pulling bottles and plants from shelves and chucking them into the pot.
