"This is going to be a long and draining procedure for me," Vincent told them. "I must
ask you both to keep absolutely quiet, as any lapse in my concentration could have
dire consequences, not just for Fred but also for anyone else present, ie not only me
but you too, my
dear." And he nodded to Astra. Then he pulled out from his bag a small
stoppered container, a wand, and various other odds and ends, and took down some large
leatherbound volumes from his shelves. For the next hour or so, he chanted various
incantations, anointed Fred with drops of liquid from the container, waved his wand
at intervals, and carried out various strange rituals. After a while a golden haze
seemed to gather around Fred and to grow gradually denser.
