"This can't be happening" Lady Hannah told Lord Robert. Within seconds she mounted her Dragon and flew to her son's side.
It was so hard for our hero. He did have his little sisters Jessica the Bright, and Heather the Sprite as well as his youngest brother Brandon the Brave come and visit. They helped him not think about his growling belly, but he is a growing hero and told the Apprentices that if they didn't get the tests done by 10 o'clock in the evening, he was going to eat anyway.
Around 6, they came to get him. They gave him a magic potion to put him to sleep and went to work. The Lords and Ladies waited and waited. Lady Hannah took Zack's little sisters and brother and Lord Robert home, for they had school the next day, then rushed back. The tests were done and the portal was placed. The sleeping potion had made him a little sick, but after a while he did get the big sandwich he wanted.
The next day (day 3) they started Chemo. This was a very special magic potion that would fight the terrible ALL curse. Zack knew that the potions would fight off the curse, but would also make him feel sick. With the first dose of potions he didn't really feel anything. Or, rather, he did, but wondered if the slightly funny feeling was just in his head because he knew what the potions would do. Mostly he just enjoyed spending time with his family. He had several visitors. His Aunt, Lady Amy came to visit, as did his grandparents, Lord George and Lady Olivia, both of whom brought stories for our hero to read. Lord Orson and Lady Marilyn also his grandparents also came to spend time with Zack. That night, Justin stayed to keep Zack company while the Lords and Ladies went home, and to friends castles to get some sleep.
Several days went by (days 4, 5, and 6) The Wizards would bring him a different potion every day, and would do magic tests to make sure everything was going according to plan.
For our Hero, it was almost fun. He could order anything he wanted from the kitchens, and play magic games with his brother, Justin, or read the books that his family had brought him. Most people expected him to be very upset about how things were going in his life. One of the Apprentices, Tomoko, told him that it would be ‘OK’ for him to be mad, or to cry because “This really SUCKS!”
He laughed, “Your right, this really sucks. I get to play X-box and have Steak and Shrimp for dinner” (That’s a direct quote). He wasn’t really feeling bad at all, and he knew that the magic potions were doing their job. He would enjoy feeling healthy and having fun, for he knew that tough times were coming.
On day 7 the Wizards’ tests showed that the plan was working and he could go home for a few days. He was very excited about this. Even though he had some fun things to do in the Tower, there was nothing like sleeping in his own bed, and playing with the Sisters that were too small to see him in the Tower. They were very close to him and he missed Daisy the Joyous, Annabelle the Quick, and Kylee the Small.
Once he was home he relaxed. He knew that hard times would be just around the corner. But for now, he was content.
